from url:


"The configuration file, and any files that it includes, are  
automatically reloaded every minute, if they change. You can force a  
reload by sending a SIGHUP to the server. Reloading the configuration  
file will not affect connections to any service that is already  
established. Either the user will have to disconnect from the service,  
or smbd killed and restarted."
