Apologies - my source is quite unofficial and now also apparently wrong.
For info, I read it here:


As Mac OS X adopted more of Samba's tools, the team behind Samba gradually
transformed the open source licensing for its software. The latest version
of Samba is offered only with General Public License Version 3 (GPLv3
<http://www.gnu.org/licenses/gpl.html>) licensing, which includes
restrictions that essentially prevent Apple from incorporating it into
commercially packaged software like Mac OS X.
