I had the same problem when I went from 3.0.4 to 3.0.8.  The solution was to
use Double Quotes, eg.

~        comment = Printer Drivers
~        path = /var/lib/samba/printers
~        write list = root, "@Domain Admins"
~        read only = No

       _o            /\         ----  __o
    _-< \_          /  \       ----  <  \,
 __(_)/_(_)________/    \_______(_) /_(_)__

~        comment = Printer Drivers
~        path = /var/lib/samba/printers
~        write list = root, @'Domain, Admins'
~        read only = No

That comma seems to keep introduceing itself into 'Domain Admins' no
matter how I write it.
