[Samba] Speed differences for windows clients

we have a strange phenomenon with the transfer speed between windows
clients and samba servers. Here's the setup:
server 1: centos 6.3 with samba 3.5.10
server 2: centos 6.4 with samba 3.6.9
both servers are configured as BDC and have - aside from netbios name -
identical smb.conf which contains ldapsam as backend and all other
parameters are not set (i.e. default)
When I mount a share from a linux client, the transfer speed is
~112MB/sec to either server from any linux client. However, when I mount
a share from Windows clients, the speed to server 1 is ~95MB/s and to
server 2 ~85MB/s. We tested this with several windows clients (all
running Windows 7 with all updates).
The speed difference between linux client and windows client is not
what's confusing me but that server 2 is always slower than server 1.
Any ideas what could cause this?
