nmbd uses only first IP address even when more are returned by DNS

Oops.  A typo in my previous message.

  - DNS names map to IP addresses.  NetBIOS names map to applications or
    services.  The NBT layer provides the IP address at which the name can 
    be found, but the *meaning* of the NetBIOS name is quite different 
    from the meaning of the [DNS] name.
That's the corrected version.
