Understood on the behavior of the backports.  The intent of the
question was does every component installed when configuring
samba need to be from backports (ie  apt-get install acl attr samba 
samba-dsdb-modules samba-vfs-modules winbind libpam-winbind 
libnss-winbind krb5-config krb5-user dnsutils) or just the package 'samba'.
