netbios aliases and domain control are different issues. Samba DC
can happily service ports 139 and 445. The clients don't care.
Its nmbd that registers the DOMAIN 0x1c and 0x1b records. This
has nothing to do with what ports smbd binds to.

He's saying that if you want virtual hosts over port 445,
you can do it using a multi-homed server (with each interface
having a different DNS name) and using the %i variable instead
