You could try adding:-

	log file = /usr/local/samba/var/log.%m

to the global section of your smbd.conf, then as each client connects it
Samba will write the errors for that client to its own log file.

Couple that with:-

        include = /usr/local/samba/etc/%m.smb.conf

and you can have different global settings for each client.  In the individual
'%m.smb.conf' files I normally only have one line:-

	debug level = 5

Don't worry.  You don't have to have a %m.smb.conf file for every
client, Samba will silently(ish) skip over the 'include =' line if
there's no file matching '%m.smb.conf'

Hope this helps,
