Not when authenticating (IIRC).  However, if memory 
serves correctly, unless you disable it, the LanMan
hash will be updated in order to support access from
older clients.  There was one bug I remember (SP5?)
where the LanMan hash would get blanked during a 
password change and thus allowing logon from an 
older client without a password
