[Samba] Detecting Samba server from Windows?

I'm curious to know how I can programmatically differentiate between a Samba
share and a Windows NT share from a Windows program. For both,
GetVolumeInformation() claims the file system is "NTFS". This isn't very
helpful. I need to be able to tell the two apart because "real" NTFS
supports various things Samba's "simulated" NTFS doesn't, such as
100-nanasecond time resolution and all file attributes.

Is it possible? It seems like this would be a common question, but extensive
searching turned up nothing...
