No. Once the name has been successfully resolved the lookup is complete.

The only retry/fallback type of behavior in jcifs is:

1) if a server specified in jcifs.netbios.wins is not responding the
   next one is tried if specified OR
2) if the Filter specific property jcifs.http.loadBalance is not false and
   jcifs.smb.client.domain is specified and WINS returns multiple addresses
   for the specifed domain and the chosen server is not responding, then
   the next server in the list will be tried.
