[Samba] Samba tries to contact external IP ?

our firewall warns me that our server where samba  2.2.3 pre  runs, tries at
random intervals to contact a machine at Because the ports are
445 and 139 I think it must be smbd or nmbd that sends this packets.

In smb.conf I find no entry with this address.

Can anyone explain me why ( and if ) samba does this ?

Thank you very much
