We have code to assist our administrators to run the right daemons while
we have this split mode of operation.  You may well be able to start
'samba' as a standalone server, but it will exit on startup.  Likewise,
when running 'nmbd' on an AD DC, this will also exit.

Please don't be confused by the 'server services' setting, this is not
relevant for a standalone server.
