[jcifs] no name with type 0x00 with no scope for host

Let me see if I can summarize...
If I'm trying to get status from an NBT node by IP address then
- If the remote node does respond, the I probably just wanted the list
- If it does not respond, then I don't care if no <00> name exists. I
didn't ask that question. I asked for status. If the status is "the
node's not answering" that's fine.
If I'm trying to get status from an NBT node by name, then
- If the name cannot be resolved, the I want to know that it could not
be resolved. It may be worth-while to let me know which suffix was
(or list of suffices were) tried so that I can specify a different
suffix to try.
- If the name resolves, via DNS or WINS or NBT broadcast, then we are
back to an IP address. Send the query. If we get no response, then
I want to an error response that says "No reply from node <name>." I
don't really care which suffix the name has, since the query wasn't
sent based on the suffix.
Again, none of this is glacial in magnitude. Just thinklings.
