[Samba] Connect via IP vs. Netbios name

I am having a issue with connecting to samba shares (OSX).  I am able to
connect to all share however depending on what method that I use to
connect to the shares I get very different performance results.  For
example if I connect to \\server\share it takes 2-3 seconds for each
directory to either appear or to viewable.  On the other side if I
connect using \\x.x.x.x\share directory access is instantaneous.


After doing some research I have discovered that I am getting a "NT
Status : Status_Logon_Failure" message.  I do not get this message using
the IP address to connect to the share.


Does any one have an Idea what might be causing this?
