You sure about that?  On Debian the owner of /var/www is www-data.
Ubuntu is derived directly from Debian.  I'd be surprised if it's that

May not be the perfect way to do it, but this has been working for me
for quite some time:

   fstype = Samba
   nt acl support = no
   valid users = stan
   admin users = root

This is with a workgroup setup, not domain.  Works fine.
