In a windows network all machines are servers.

If you don't want to give out any files or authenticate users, fine. You
still need to configure nmbd for others to see you, set the right
workgroup name, etc.

For smbclient most of these parameters can be set on the commandline so
almost any smb.conf should work as client-only.

It is on all important lists. :)
