I used interfaces and bind interfaces only.

My setup is as follows,

  <public> HOST1<privateip> ------ <private-ip>HOST2 <public>

Host1 and Host2 are connected back to back. Now if Host1 has samba 
binded to private IP, Host2 cannot connect to it. There is no firewall 
on private interface.

But if Samba listens on public IP, host1 can connect. I was wondering 
if samba binds itself to hostname  like in windows.
