As soon as you have at least one connection, smbd should show up (one
daemon per client). One instance of nmbd - when your samba is
configured as domain or maybe even browse master - should always be
running, a second one will be launched for async dns queries I think.
Unfortunately, when DNS fails (named shut down ....), _many_ nmbd
processes will start and clog the system resources.

Just because the ports are already in use.
Take a look at your log.smbd and log.nmbd, maybe set loglevel 2 or 3.
Is smbclient working?
