[Samba] Problems mounting a DOMAIN share,
rather than a COMPUTER share

Can Samba mount a DFS share, using \\DOMAIN\dfs, rather than \\COMPUTER\dfs?
The following command successfully lists all the shares on a domain
controller, the same as \\DOMAIN does on Windows. One of the shares
returned is "dfs" which is the root of my dfs tree:
smbclient -U administrator -L domain.example.com | grep Disk
So, I tried to mount "dfs" using the various commands below (errors are
in ""), none of which work. Is this impossible, or am I missing something?
mount_smbfs -I domaincontroller.example.com
//administrator at example.com/dfs /mnt
"server name 'example.com' too long"
mount_smbfs -I domaincontroller.example.com //administrator at domain/dfs /mnt
"mount_smbfs: unable to open connection: syserr = Connection reset by peer"
mount //administrator at domain/dfs /mnt
"mount: //administrator at domain/dfs: No such file or directory"
mount_smbfs //administrator at domain/dfs /mnt
"mount_smbfs: can't get server address: syserr = Operation timed out"
