I would have thought there was a big hint in the program name ;-)

Just in case you missed it, lets break smbcacls down, SMB c ACLS, it is 
a tool to set SMB ACLs on a directory or file, it is not a tool to set 
NFSv4ACLS on a directory or file.

It might help if you tell us why you are trying to do this. It might be 
that you are trying to re-share an NFS share via Samba, if so, can I 
suggest you stop doing this, there have been numerous problems reported 
when doing this.
