There's a note at the top of that document:
"Samba only supports logging of succeeded authorization events."
Does that mean that it won't log authentication events at all? Because that's implied.
I think it would be better, assuming it will log auth events, to say;
"Samba only supports logging of *successful* authorization events, not unsuccessful. Samba also supports logging of both successful and unsuccessful auth events."
Just my two bits worth.
