I use samba-3.2.x samba-3.3.2 and samba 3.0.x in a jail as a member server against an windows 2003 server and all is working fine.
Those machines are proxy machines and on that machine i installed a jail for samba for a local copy of the dat from the windows servers.
Also to house some large (over 2.5GB) .pst files from the fantastic outlook 2007 which can make the file grow to 20Gb.
It all Works just fine, just make sure it never uses the localhost address.

I use ezjail to create the jails by the way.
