Are you using Winbind? Winbind is required. Also if you set the
permission to files or directories into the share (not the share
itself), you have to enable the ACL facility for the share's

For example adding "acl" mount option, the facility becomes enabled 
for Linux EXT3 or XFS .

Also --with-acl-support configure option is required. After Samba
3.2.0, the default is "auto".
