[Samba] can "root" still connect clients to a domain?

when I connect a Windows client to a Samba domain I am asked for the
user's login name and password on the Linux server who has the rights to
do this job.
Under Samba 3.0.22 and older I could use "root" with a password defined
via "smbpasswd" (must not be the Linux password). Under Samba 3.0.28 and
newer this way seems no more possible; I have to use another user from
the "admin users = xxx, yyy, zzz" line.
Is that a change which is somewhere documented?
Please excuse my gerlish.
