[Samba] WINS server/client

I've read that Samba can be a WINS server or a WINS client, but not
both. However, wouldn't Samba, when acting as a WINS server also be a
WINS client in the sense that it will examine its own WINS database for
NETBIOS name resolution? It just wouldn't make sense if it didn't. Maybe
the reference I read is more for the purpose of exposing the mutual
exclusivity of the "WINS support" and "WINS server" parameters.
Anybody know for sure?
