 From the man page for smb.conf:

valid users (S)

     This is a list of users that should be allowed to login to this 
service. Names starting with '@', '+' and '&' are interpreted using the 
same rules as described in the invalid users parameter.

     If this is empty (the default) then any user can login. If a 
username is in both this list and the invalid users list then access is 
denied for that user.

     The current servicename is substituted for %S. This is useful in 
the [homes] section.

     Default: valid users = # No valid users list (anyone can login)

     Example: valid users = greg, @pcusers
