I think you can do this as follows:
First blank out the "logon path" and "logon home" parameters in SMB.CONF:
        logon path =
        logon home =
This way by default users have no roaming profile (I think).
Then modify the users who DO need a roaming profile as follows:
        pdbedit <username> -h "\\\\server\\homedirpath" -p

Or you can do the inverse: define a "logon path" and "logon home" in
SMB.CONF, and then modify those users who do NOT need a roaming
profile like this:
        pdbedit <username> -h "" -p ""
