Netbios name %m not always correct

We have just moved a server over to Samba 3.0.0, and it seems that %m,
which should return the netbios name often returns the ip number of the
host instead. This is a problem, (apart from making the logging more
confusing), since we use smbclient to provide responses to certain
actions, and if %m isn't returning the correct netbios name I don't think
the message gets through.

Has anyone else seen this problem or know how to fix it?
