That's a solution, but I have ~15 clients machines and I want to
avoid this.
BTW, my original message stated something slightly wrong ; I said :

The lookup is not DNS ("domain") but netbios-ns. I don't know what the resolve
order is for netbios-ns.

I want really to use Samba to solve the problem ...
