Samba allows clients to mount sub-directories of shares - NT does

I was just proved wrong by a collegue when he was saying that he had been
do the following:
net use t: \\sambaserver\share\dir1\dir2
My understanding is that NT will not let clients mount at anything other
than the share level. That is, it will not let you mount subdirs (as NFS
does), so the above will not work. So, I said that because Samba provides
the same behaviour as an NT server it would not allow the above either.
Well it does!
Samba version is 2.0.6 running on a Solaris 2.6 host.
Although it is a nice feature, I don't want it because I can't support the
same behaviour on our NT servers and that confuses users.
Am I missing a switch or something?
