nmbd will complain bitterly about the extra responses it's seeing to
broadcast queries if you do this.

Hi Tony,

a simple approach will be to configure both NICs and configure Samba to use
both cards. DNS can be used to assign IP addresse of both NICs to one host
name. If one NIC fails the other one will still be running.
