Debug classes are assigned to particular source files and those are the 
files I was refering to. In the debug traces the file name and the line 
in the code generating the message are always shown. Therefore, if you 
know what message you want to receive in your logs you need to look at 
the source code of the file to which this message refer and see what 
debug class was assign to it and what debug level was used to print the 
message. This will be the class and the level you would want to have in 
your smb.conf as a "log level" parameter.

I applogize for the confusion - English is not my native language.
Hope it helps,
