SBS 2008 Folder privacy for Mac

We have a mixed network using a Windows Small Business Server 2008. Our mixed network consists of Macs and PCs. Our presidents folder is private. Only our president and her assistant are suppose to have access to the folder. All the PCs are members of the domain. When a PC user tries to access the Presidents folder they are denied access. However when a Mac user tries to access the presidents folder they have access. I imagine that this is because the Macs are not part of the domain. They access the server via "connect to server" option in the "GO" menu using an smb path.

How can we make the presidents folder private from Mac users as well?

If you set permissions at the NTFS level, the server will not send data from the file system stack to the networking stack u less the user requesting data is authenticated and has a token meeting the NTFS ACL list. So securing files at the file system level works as you want regardless of the client OS.
