After removing NFS, we got yet another corruption - I just heard they
use Samba on this file system. So, let me ask the question - Samba is
supported in zone, running on LOFS - is this correct?

Hello Vladi,

Yes you can use LOFS to all your zones to share the file system 
providing r/w access. I would even say that this is your BEST option.

NFS mount in your local zones of a file system shared by the global zone

is absolutely not supported (including autofs access of course).
