I don't believe there is a way in smb.comf to specify this.  While I have
not tried it myself, perhaps use TCP Wrappers with SWAT. TCP Wrappers are
available at

Also, if your kernel supports firewalling you could add firewalling rules
to block/allow only the IP addresses that you want.

Hope this helps.
