JCIFS does not use NetBIOS by default. JCIFS only uses the NetBIOS
session service if it tries port 445 and it is unavailable in which
case it will fall back to potr 139. JCIFS will only use NetBIOS name
resolution if it tries DNS and it cannot resolve the name and BCAST or
WINS is in jcifs.resolveOrder in which case it will try those
