I said "if you are being a simple client". See above.

If the other names are appearing in Samba's database when used via PPTP,
then I doubt that it is Samba. If I understand your description
correctly, nmbd is receiving the other names and registering them just
fine. I know of no reason it would make an exception for this name.
Basically, if the other names work then I'm lost as to why this one
wouldn't. I assume that you can use the IP address to connect to the
service. Is that true?
