Do you mean log.smbd is 0 bytes ?

The process is like this...

- - smbd starts up and open a debug file to log and
issues parsing smb.conf

- - smbd reads a new log file directive from smbd and
so reopens the new debug file

- - smbd gets a connection from a client and forks
a copy of itself opening a new log file based on the ip
address of the socket connection

- - smbd gets the netbios session setup or the SPNEGO
NTLMSSP session setup request and reopens the new log
file in the machines netbios name (log.%m)

What you are seeing is behavipr by design.
