Description Michael Mol 2013-03-01 02:07:35 UTC
The man page for smb.conf(5) reads:

ntp signd socket directory (G)

           This setting controls the location of the socket that the NTP daemon uses to communicate with Samba for signing packets.

           If a non-default path is specified here, then it is also necessary to make NTP aware of the new path using the ntpsigndsocket
           directive in ntp.conf.

           Default: ntp signd socket directory = $prefix/run/samba/ntp_signd

On Gentoo, the default place ntp_signd turns up is instead "/var/lib/samba/ntp_signd".
