Domain name string in SMB Negotiate Protocol Response always

I have been trying to troubleshoot a retransmission issue on my network
with Microsoft SMB and TDS protocols. Here is what I see,

1.	For every 10 packets of TDS and SMB protocols I see 2 packets
retransmitted with pretty much a pattern.
2.	I do see Flag2 on my sniffer traces as Unicode String in both
Negotiate Protocol and AndX Response frames.
3.	I also see that every other Response frame is marked as
"Response to an unknown frame" and responses are retransmitted the
second response seems to be valid though.
4.	I have completely isolated an XP machine with a win2K3 server
and it shows the same behavior
5.	Any input or guidance will be greatly appreciated
