Samba 2.0.7 Sol 251: nmbd and smbd - start/stop independently?

Does anyone know of problems with starting/stopping nmbd and smbd
independently of each other?

I need to stop smbd, to ensure that users are not accessing shares,
while I do a
backup of the file system, but I need to continue running nmbd to
provide WINS services.

Are there any problems with stopping smbd and then starting it after the
backup while
allowing nmbd to run uninterrupted?
