The code indicates a QUERYFORPDC request (see include/nameserv.h), which is as it should be.

"Logon from" should however be followed by the IP address of the requesting workstation. It
being blank is rather odd... at least on my system inet_ntoa will always translate whatever
garbage you pass it into dotted form.
