Are dashes OK in Domain Name?

I was browsing through the SAMBA workgroups defined here:
E51-CAE, E51-WAAS, etc... everything looked fine (well, with
the exception of subnet browsing) until I displayed the
properties of the machines in the workgroups.
Select a SAMBA host, right-click on the hostname and select
'Properties' from an NT4 machine displays the domain as "E51";
everything from the dash onward is missing... Machines in other
workgroups, without 'dashes' display the workgroup/domain properly...
Displaying the properties of the NT4 machine itself shows the full
workgroup name, with dashes...
Should I be concerned? Do I need to rename the workgroups?
or is it just a meaningless defect...?
