You can choose cryptic stuff in smb.conf or go with a 2 liner smb.conf
and use the equally cryptic acl method. The latter is quicker:

path = /path/to/share1

setfacl -d -Rm g:group1:rw /path/to/share2

I think that's what smb.conf does anyway but don't quote me.

I'm sure that it can't be as simple as that but it works perfectly
without having to know anything about smb.conf
