If you still want to use samba.service you could try:

$ cd /lib/systemd/system && ln -sf smbd.service samba.service

I don't know if the above command has side effects though.

It would be nice if the package name and service name matched, but
"service smbd status" works and I don't know systemd, so I will leave
it alone.

AIUI (if I do), SMB is the protocol, and smbd is the daemon that
provides it. However, juxtaposing the strings "smb" and "serv*" falls
foul of a trademark, hence the coining of "samba" for the name of the
implementation.

Ok.
