Are you talking about a filesystem mounted from Linux
formatted as NTFS ? Or a normal Samba filesystem (e.g.
ext4) with Samba-style NTFS permissions stored on it ?

If the latter, and rsync isn't copying the Samba NTFS
permissions, I have an idea as to what may be wrong

Might need an rsync patch :-).
