[Samba] dns

My problem is almost certainly that I've screwed up my local bind 
configuration (I have bind running on my LAN behind a NATted gateway). 
Until last week, samba was working just fine.  Obviously at some point 
last week I made a change to my zone files which meant that my yip.yay 
addresses no longer resolve (yip.yay is just a name i picked out of a 
hat -- i don't own the domain or anything, but since this is a private 
network i don't think it matters).  When I try to connect with another 
machine (prometheus -- in this case) i see the following in 

[2002/12/03 20:20:45, 0] lib/util_sock.c:matchname(900)
   sys_gethostbyname(prometheus.yip.yay): lookup failure.
[2002/12/03 20:20:45, 0] lib/util_sock.c:get_socket_name(967)
   Matchname failed on prometheus.yip.yay

I definitely want to figure out what I did wrong with my bind 
configuration, but in the meantime is there a way that I can ask samba 
not to query dns so that samba will be usable until I get this fixed?

	thank you very much in advance for you time,
