I think you may have this backwards...
If I understand this correctly there are two possibilities
Samba domain controller
nt acl support must be yes if you are using XPsp1.
nt acl support can be yes if you are using XPrelease
nt acl support can be yes if you are using win2kSP2
No samba domain controller
nt acl support = no for win2ksp2 and XPrelease
for XPsp1 you must apply the group policy change to log on.
