You can use multiple identity for SAMBA server, like this:
  netbios aliases = SERVER1 SERVER2
  include = /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.%L

smb.conf.server1: (must be in lower case)


Restart NMBD and SMBD processes.
And now are on network two hosts (SERVER1 and SERVER2). Physically it's 
only one machine.
In SERVER1 users can see only shares and in SERVER2 only printers.
