There are 25 IP's that show as a result of this command. 
wbinfo -I <IP_ADDR> on each IP shows 14 that resolve to a name
piping the IP's to nslookup shows 10 NXDOMAIN entries (not applicable
really, but the 'standard' for them is to have an A record for servers,
at least)
piping the IP's to ping shows 10 IP's with 100% packet loss.
It may be important to note that this domain primarily houses mail (MS
Exchange) servers, which all respond to ldap packets.

3.0beta3. I pulled CVS yesterday, but have not installed/compiled it.
This might be a seperate issue, but another bit of info is that if I try
to use 'net lookup ldap <DOMAIN>', I get this in syslog:
[2003/08/08 11:19:13, 0] lib/charcnv.c:convert_string(194)
  convert_string: Required 26, available 16
When I specify a different domain, I get the same message with a
different required length. Google turns up others with this, but no
solution. What's wrong here?
