I did a HA SAMBA print server with two nodes like this:
 - /var/lib/samba shared with DRBD. tdb files in /var/lib/samba are
backuped daily too with tdbbackup on the active node to have a copy if
they get corrupted
 - /etc/samba directories are csynced between the two nodes
 - every time heartbeat activate a node, /var/cache/samba is deleted to
make a fresh start. For a SAMBA print server, you don't need to
share /var/cache/samba. For a file server I don't know.

This was on Debian Sarge with Samba 3.0.21c, and it works fine for a
print server without authentication since months.

Hope this helps. Regards,
