But that *is* a broadcast, they exact type that is done in the absence
I seem to recall hearing that the client gets a list of all the DCs in
the WINS and sends a request to each of them and then picks the one
that responds first; a focused broadcast, if you will. NetBIOS names
with type 0x1c are domain controllers, I believe.
