[Samba] Completely Disable NTLM on Samba4

I should have a good karma: my company hired an AD expert from Microsoft
for two days before my vacation : )

I asked him what is their (M$) point of view regarding fully disabling NTLM
& NTLMv2. The answer I remind is: "some services [on client computers] rely
on NTLM[v2] in certain conditions so don't disable it to avoid strange
As far as I understand, and if my memory is good enough coming back from
vacation, we should keep NTLM (v2 at least) on DC as they manage
authentication for client computers.
Regarding file servers I expect we can disable NTLM: their role is to offer
files only.

I've asked that MS person to confirm (or not) that. I come back to tell you.
