ACL support on Linux

Since Linux supports NTFS, can SAMBA be set up on a Linux box to 
preserve and use the ACL information in the NTFS.?

 I have a basic understanding of how samba handles this sort of thing 
on a Unix file system, but it seems  that samba wouldn't need to do any 
emulating at all if the Server it runs on actually supports NTFS.

Admittedly, I am not a SAMBA or Linux expert, so I probably have an overly 
simplistic view on how this all works.  Any explanation on this topic would
greatly appreciated.
