Possibly. I think nfs (knfsd) wants the filesystem to provide it with a
unique stable id through some special methods. smbfs doesn't do that.
There is a userspace nfs daemon too, maybe that works differently.

But it could also be that the permissions you use to mount smbfs doesn't 
allow something that nfs wants ...

You should check if you can get some debug info out of your nfsd.
