Hi all

Recently i noticed that upon starting the samba4 'samba' daemon, that it
changes the group ownership of the socket for ntpd to *staff*

$ls -l /usr/local/samba/var/lib/ntp_signd/
total 0
srwxrwxrwx 1 root *staff* 0 May  6 16:35 socket

The documentation says it needs to be *ntp*....

(FYI: i'm running this on debian wheezy)

I have just added ntp to group staff, but that seems like a workaround...
