That's a failure in
BOOL attempt_netbios_session_request(struct cli_state *cli, char
*srchost, char *desthost, struct in_addr *pdest_ip) {

The line number points to the DEBUG statement in:
  if (!nmb_name_equal(&called, &smbservername) ||
        !cli_initialise(cli) ||
        !cli_connect(cli, desthost, pdest_ip) ||
        !cli_session_request(cli, &calling, &called)) {
          DEBUG(0,("attempt_netbios_session_request: %s rejected the
Error was : %s.\n", desthost, cli_errstr(cli)));
          return False;

I'd get a new copy of Samba 2.0.6 for Solaris 7, optionally
a binary copy, and give it a try and see if the problem
immediuately disappears.

If not, we'll need to run with high log levels, and know what the
client was doing at the time.
