    In smb.conf i have set 
         wins support = no
         netbios aliases  = jack

    Then i restarted smbd and nmbd.
    Then execute following command on local system:
       #nmblookup -U -R jack
        querying jack on jack<00> 

    Is this expected output or should command fail to
query for 
    jack as local system is not wins server ?

    If this is EXPECTED output, is there any command
by which
    i can find if local system is wins server ?
