To simplify it:

If given "SMB://"

1) Look for the __MSBROWSE__ name and choose one of the responding nodes.
   Cross your fingers and hope that it's been up long enough that it has 
   achieved a reasonable degree of convergence.

2) If #1 fails, contact the NBNS for a DMB (any DMB... If you've got a 
   default workgroup name, try that.  Else, try *<1B> which may also fail.

3) If in 'P' mode skip step 1, if in 'B' mode skip step 2.

4) If none of that works the query fails.
