[Samba] Reloading Smb.conf automatically?

I believe samba re-checks the configuration all by itself every minute,
so just be patient and it will do the job for you without clients having
to re-logon as would be required with a complete samba restart. Not sure
about the multiple NMB's though.

Just a few quick questions:

If I make changes to smb.conf, do I need to restart the SMB and NMB
services, or is it like Vixie Cron, where it'll re-read the file and
adapt changes every minute?

Why do I have multiple NMB instances running, but only one SMB?

Thanks for the help!
