are your clients not able to see //servername/Point/pntdata?

are you saying that you want //servername/pntdata to be available as well.

if you want each subdirectory to be its own top level share you'll have to
explitly state each one in smb.conf. 
that's a nasty setup - be sure before you implement that.
