Patch to XML documents

woops...my BR was cut down..:-)

Teh spelling error about "prefered master" is in this parameter's documentation. From what I understand, the parameter historically supports the misspelling of "prefered", while "preferred master" is also supported. I still suggest that the documentation is about the not misspelled parameter, of course.

Thanks a lot for the patch.
I pushed it to master (e1e6b19a), v3-5-test, v3-4-test and v3-3-test.

I don't agree to the preferred master change.
The right spelling is "preferred" and that's the main section in the smb.conf man page. "prefered master" is the synonym. So I think it's right without the change.
That's why I pushed the patch without this hunk.

Closing out bug report.

Please reopen if you do not agree.

Thanks!
