You need to add

    host msdfs = yes

in the global section of your smb.conf and make a share with

    msdfs root = yes

Then it's just a matter of making symbolic links in the share pointing
to SMB servers instead of file paths e.g.:

    ln -s 'msdfs:the_server\the_share' the_link

There is a wiki page on this too.
