Help, name_query failed to find name  ???

These are my correct settings for the machine kingkong:
$ ifconfig
eth0      Link encap:Ethernet  HWaddr --omitted--  
inet addr:xxx.xx.52.19  Bcast:xxx.xx.52.127

This is what I get with a nmblookup command.
$nmblookup -B xxx.xx.52.127 -d5 kingkong
Initialising global parameters
params.c:pm_process() - Processing configuration file
Processing section "[global]"
doing parameter workgroup = 
doing parameter interfaces = xxx.xx.52.19/
pm_process() returned Yes
added interface ip=xxx.xx.52.19 bcast=xxx.xx.62.127
--note the different bcast address, 62 instead of 52--
