[jcifs] Once again with feeling: SessionKey

I sent this query last Friday. I'm still perplexed, even after having
read through all sorts of odd/obscure docs and ancient postings...
There's an odd field in the Negotiate Protocol Response called the
SessionKey field. It does not appear to have any relationship to
encryption or validation. It's just a unique number generated by the
server (W/95, for example).
I see that it is also present in the Session Setup Andx Request.
Is this field used, and if so how? jCIFS doesn't echo it back to the
server, but smbclient does (which is what I'd expect). Yet jCIFS seems
to work fine.
Either the field is ignored or I'm missing something obvious. Clues
