} Can someone point me in the correct direction on this?

It's coming from the code that attempts to parse the "name resolve
order" declaration in your Samba configuration file.  The possible
values for that declaration are "lmhosts",  "host",  "wins"  and

So "dns" should be replaced with "host" in your smb.conf.

See the manpage for smb.conf for details.
