[jcifs] jcifs.netbios.hostname and authentication

I have a Windows Domain with a policy restricting which users can log on
to which workstations.  I am using jCIFS 1.2.7 to authenticate with
hosts on this domain.  I see that the jcifs.netbios.hostname property
has to be set to the correct hostname before SmbSession.logon(String
hostname, NtlmPasswordAuthentication authenticator) is called.  Are
there any plans to modify jCIFS so that SmbSession.logon() works
correctly on such a Windows Domain without having to set the
aforementioned property?  Is the requirement to set this property
regarded as a bug in jCIFS?  Thanks.
