smbclient using all interfaces

I'm confused.  I have the following lines in my smb.conf file (2.0.2,

interfaces =
bind interfaces only = Yes

The system also have an additional interface of  If I
block TCP/UDP ports 137-139 on my router and then try to do

	smbclient -L another_host

I never get a response from the remote host.  When I look at the router
logs, I see that packets have been dropped on that router interface
because of the filter.  If I remove the filter on the router, everything
starts to work again.

So, does anybody have any thoughts as to why this is happening???
