The getChallengeForDomain code has been rewritten. It has been considerably
simplified.     It     will     now     rotate     through     the    first
jcifs.netbios.lookupRespLimit  domain  controllers  rather than try to grow
and shrink the list depending on load. The lookupRespLimit property default
has  been  reduced  to  3. The timeout value for rebuilting the DC list has
been  increased  from  20  minutes  to  10  hours.  This  is  calculated by
multiplying   jcifs.netvios.cachePolicy  by  60  but  the  default  in  the
SmbSession  class  is  60  *  10 meaning 10 minutes so 10 * 60 is 10 hours.
Finally  the  NtlmChallenge class is now Serializeable for servers that are
pedantic about what can be stored in a session.

IRC - where men are men, women are men, and the boys are FBI agents.
