DNS Lookups

V. 1.9.17p1, FreeBSD.

Why is it that SAMBA will do a DNS lookup for a WINS host (that is not
in DNS), even though nmblookup returns the IP address straightaway?

The problem I'm having is that my dialup connection is activated when DNS
packets are detected.  This seems to happen all the time, even though no
traffic is destined for the Internet.  SMB seems to work fine.

Any pointers appreciated.
