it's because the query is specifically sent to that machine. only that
machine is expected to respond.
remember that NetBIOS itself used to be a transport, so you can set "bcast
= True" which is equivalent to sending to x.x.255.255 or x.x.x.255 or
whatever, and "bcast = false" which is equivalent to sending to x.x.x.x
