When a parameter is marked as 'deprecated', it is a warning that
sometime in the future it will be removed. This doesn't mean that it
will not work at present, but that it will be removed at a future date.
When it is removed, it is very likely that SMBv1 will also be removed
and NT4-style domains will no longer work.

Have a look here:

It now defaults to 'no'
