Problem with /home mapping

With BRANCH_NTDOM I have the following lines in my [global] section for

   logon path = \\%N\profiles\%U\profile
   logon home = \\%N\%U
   auto services = homes

If I understand correctly, this will emulate the roaming profiles and home
paths as done with NT Server.  The docs also recommend NOT using the home
share for a roaming profile, thus the above configuration.

I also have a [homes] and [profiles] shares.

The problem is:  When an NT or 95 user uses the syntax:

net use h: /home

It will map the h: drive to the PROFILES share.  Should it map to the
HOMES share?
