Are you sure about that? google tells me:

"This version [6.0] adds support for SMB over TCP/IP as well, bringing Windows
 clients into the fold."

"In addition, Version 6 will provide SMB client support, letting Windows 95
 and Windows NT clients access AppleShare servers natively."

And would smbclient get as far as protocol negotiation if the server
didn't support SMB? I'd expect it to fail sooner (session request).
