As above,

 From what I understand (also obvious from the package name) is that 
'smbclient' is only a client.
You can browse shares or use it for troubleshooting. Does it have any 
affect on the actual samba server?

I mean does this package have to be installed in order for a samba 
server to work properly?

It seems to be that this package can be removed, I just want to make 
sure that it's not an important part of the samba server.
