timestamp-problem on NT

In order to backup some files on my NT-workstation (NT4 german SP3) I 
do something like the following on the linux-box (2.0.32):

> mkdir backup
> smbmount //ntbox/share backup
> zip -r backup.zip backup/*

after this most of the timestamps in the directory tree pointed to by 
"\\ntbox\share" are completely messed up, making "make" and other 
tools (and me) very unhappy.

Setting the share readonly or using tar instead of zip seems to work 
without this problem.
