[Samba] empty password

Samba-4.0.10 in AD mode.
I need to have an account with an empty password.
After checking the smb.conf manpage (and also smbpasswd manpage), I added to
the smb.conf file:

     null passwords = Yes

The result is a warning from commands like smbstatus:

WARNING: The "null passwords" option is deprecated

I cannot find the new option to achieve this.  How is it supposed to be configured
to not be flagged as "deprecated"?
