[Samba] Problem with nmbd

My Samba installation seems to work fine, except for the NetBIOS names part. When I use nmblookup, it appears to be using the wrong broadcast address and the log file for nmbd has constant 'Packet send failed, Host is down' messages. If I use nmblookup and force the broadcast address with -B, it seems to work.
The docs seem to say you can specify a broadcast address in smb.conf, but I can't find information on the format needed. From what I can gather, the query needs to go to 10.0.0.0 and not 10.0.0.255 (as it is currently trying).
How can I set that?
