Unfortunately, I don't have a PDC around to test this on. Shame, though
I don't doubt you.
The only conflict would be the #00 name. <computer>#00 is the workstation
name (machine name) and <domain>#00 is a group name registered by the old
LANman-2 domain system, which is long out of use (I assume). Interesting
Still, it makes things easier since, if true, a local master browser
cannot have the same NetBIOS name as a file server. Thus, a string like:
can be a browse list request *or* a request to list services on a server,
but not both. Either srvname#20 will resolve or srvname#1D will resolve,
but not both.
