I feel that I am in the realm of the cargo cult with respect to MS,
Samba and ntp.  Is there a reference that someone can point me to that
explains what ntpsigndsocket actually accomplishes; as in how is the
socket used and by what?

Obviously it is tying Samba and ntp together somehow but I do not
understand what this accomplishes.  If the setting is not placed in
ntp.conf then what are the implications?  Is the directory used
arbitrary configured in the Samba build or is it configurable?  if so
how and where; smb4.conf?
