[Samba] Unicode support in samba

Does samba (smb client) connect to servers whose names are in UTF-16
as part of internationalization?
i.e if I have a chinese installation on windows 200X, and the server name
is in chinese charset, can the smb client enumerate that and list the
chinese name?

I searched the net for this information and didnt get any. I see only
unicode file and share names, and no mention of server names in unicode at
all. For example can the LANMAN NetServerEnum2 comeback with unicode
server names on the wire?

Please assist.
