What kill signal are you sending it?  If TERM isn't working, try HUP.
You could also check the manpage for SMNPD and see what signals it

If you want to be brutal, you could always kill with signal 9 (as
signal 9 cannot be caught by the process being killed), but that's
usually an option of last resort, since the program being killed will
have no opportunity to do proper cleanup, close open files, etc.
