[Samba] Understanding samba singd

I would like to understand how singd works. From my understanding, ntpd
listens on UDP port 123, gets the request from a Windows client, than
ntpd contacts samba using a unix named socket, samba adds the Message
Authentication code and sends it back to ntpd who then sends back the
udp packet. Is that correct?
