On Windows, the SYSTEM account is used by services on the local host (in
your case, the local host is your Samba server). For example, virus
scanners might use it to get access to all files. However, there is
nothing on your Samba server that uses the SYSTEM account. Thus it makes
no difference if you add it or not.
