Samba's response to a node status query includes a MAC Addr of 0:0:0:0:0:0

In looking at the output from the nmblookup -A <node-name> command, I 
noticed that Samba is responding incorrectly to a node status query.

We are returning all zeros for the piece after the list of names, when we 
should probably return at least the MAC address of the interface that the 
query packet came in on (if we can figure that out) or the MAC addr of the 
primary interface ...

I imagine that that code is in nmbd.

Would it be important to fix?
