netbios/udp server failing

maybe someone could help me.

My box (convert) sits in a NT-Domain, i am running samba (2.0.5a-4 Debian
potato). Every couple of minutes, my syslog shows a lot of

Nov  4 15:43:09 convert nmbd[8798]: connect from
Nov  4 15:43:09 convert inetd[976]: /usr/sbin/tcpd: exit status 0x1

and finally :
Nov  4 15:43:09 convert inetd[976]: netbios-ns/udp server failing (looping),
service terminated

The same messages i also get from our secondary NT-Domain controller
LASERVER. BTW: My "convert" is only member of the domain, no server.

What is it? Why does my my own machine try to contact itself? What does
LASERVER want to know from me? How can i satisfy all these requests? It
looks somewhat misconfigured...

Thanks for your help
