One of the first things I learned about SMB is that "thou shalt have both
machines syncronized to the same NTP master". Having system clocks
out-of-sync while eg. doing a "make" on the client box causes all sorts
of grief, especially if you were editing sources in a shell session on
the server. If you're running stuff that isn't timestamp-sensitive,
OTOH, you might get away with it.

(Note that my experience was with a real server and an MS client; you
have the opposite, so YMMV.)
