What you can try. 

Map the sysvol share from the samba to a driveletter on the DC. 

Add :  acl_xattr:ignore system acls = yes
Too the sysvol share on samba. 

Use deltacopy to copy the sysvol 

I havent tried it, but above seams logical and can work, you just have to try it yourself. 

If deltacopy does not work, try cwRsync or robocopy.
