Hmm. You could experiment with setting the 'server string' variable in
smb.conf to something like "Windows Server 2003 R2 5.2" and seeing if
the Exchange deployment is parsing server string or some other
attribute in the samba publication.

I don't believe there are currently any other options in smb.conf for
masquerading Samba server type from UNIX to an arbitrary Windows.
