Not able to move data between datasets

I've setup Transmission jail with a mount point (source is a dataset, destination is Transmission's default download folder), so all Transmission download file go to that dataset (dataset A).
I have another dataset for all the movies (dataset B).

Here's the problem: when I'm trying to mv Transmission download movies into dataset B, output of "mv" says "permission not permitted". The reason being dataset B is shared via SMB so "mv" is not allowed to change mode of the files, even when I'm running "mv" as root.

So what's the right way of moving Transmission download files into another dataset/folder?

Did you find a solution for this?
I think not...what I'm doing now is creating a new folder in dataset B and mount this folder as Transmission's download folder (using mount point), This way I can mv Transmission's download files into other folders in dataset B and then change the owner... still a pain in the ass.
Any good idea?
