[Samba] _really_ disable netbios

I have disabled NetBIOS over TCP/IP on our network, both for
Windows and for Samba hosts.

Samba hosts have these directives in their smb.conf

disable netbios = yes
smb ports = 445

But I still see NetBIOS broadcasts and responses coming from Samba hosts,
probably because they are still running nmbd.

Can I just shut nmbd down or does it still have use?
