Whether or not Samba is running locally or elsewhere is not relevant to
NTP. That's something that the adminstrator of the system needs to
decide for themselves. NTP cannot help here. Incidently, this is not
Samba authentication, it's MS-NTP authentication and it can be used for
Microsoft's Domain Controller.
