Newbie question: symlinks and samba

I have noticed that cygwin (b20) doesn't create symlinks correctly in our
windows nfs (maestro) filesystems, though it does so correctly in the ntfs
I'm assuming this is probably some inherent limitation in windows nfs, so
I am considering switching to samba instead. Does anyone know whether
symlinks (e.g. using 'ln -s') can be created successfully using a cygwin+samba
Thanks in advance.
