This does not change very much:

| [Server B]
| # smbd -V
| Version 3.0.23c-2
| # cat /etc/samba/smb.conf |grep "valid users"
|         valid users = "Unix Group"\private 
| [Client]
| $ smbclient  //serverb/private -U user1
| added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
| added interface ip= bcast= nmask=
| Password: 
| Domain=[DOMAIN] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.23c-2]
| tree connect failed: NT_STATUS_ACCESS_DENIED

Is the syntax correct, i.e. "Unix Group" has to be written as is and in

Server B is not under my control, but I _could_ trigger an update to
3.023d if there is a somewhat realistic chance this would help. The
release notes say:

| * Fix primary group lookup failures.  Use the Get_Pwnam_alloc() 
|   call to ensure it finds the Unix user first.

Could this be an issue here?
