SMB is CIFS.  CIFS is the product of Microsoft's "embraced and extended"
implementation of the standard SMB protocol.  Due to imcomplete and expired
IETF drafts and licensing issues, there is no real CIFS standard from which
to write an implementation.  There isn't even real documentation of the
differences between the standard SMB and Microsoft's CIFS.

The smbfs support in FreeBSD is good enough to work in most cases.  If you
need something directly developed toward a high degree of interoperability
with Windows, there are ports from the Samba project which may provide a
more complete implementation.
