source4/smbd/server.c is compiled as 'samba'. 

the source3/smbd/server.c is compiled as 'smbd'.  Both form part of the
Samba 4.0 release, and Samba 4.0 as an AD DC will use both components
(and many other shared parts). 

We hope to reduce the confusion from our historical development
practices as we further integrate our unified Samba release.  What we
will release with Samba 4.0 is just the first step, we hope to continue
the process as time and resources allow.
