If you want a newer samba on wheezy you should install samba from
wheezy-backports, because that is what is supported and tested.

As far as I can see this is actually libgssapi.so.3 in wheezy having
problems with libkrb6.so.26 from jessie because
krb5_ntlm_init_get_challange has been renamed to
krb5_ntlm_init_get_challenge (typo got fixed) without providing a
compatibility symbol or bumping the SO version, so reassigning to

Kind regards,
