From what i know the bultin backup engine is design to work with "block device". This meaning backing up over samba will not work or give you errors.
This is also comfirmed by MS here. http://groups.google.com/group/microsof ... mote+share

SBS 2008 is not designed to backup to a network share. The backup engine is
designed to backup to a "block device" that it can completely control. The
solution to doing a network backup in SBS 2008 is to use iSCSI. You can use
software such as StarWind on the network server to allow it to behave as an
iSCSI SAN, and this will allow you to use the native iSCSI initiator in
Windows Server 2008 to mount the remote storage as a volume on your SBS 2008
My suggestion to you. If you are going to use the bultin backup client the use iscsi. This way windows backup engine will have full controll of the iscsi target. Other suggestion would be to get another backup software like backupexec that will also give you alot of other niffty options. Downside is it will cost you some $$$..
