This is probably because the MAX_CONNECTIONS is set too low. I set mine
to 768 and have had no problems with about 45 users per citrix server.
look in smbd/conn.c in the samba sources:

/* set these to define the limits of the server. NOTE These are on a
   per-client basis. Thus any one machine can't connect to more than
   MAX_CONNECTIONS services, but any number of machines may connect at
   one time. */
