See the man page for smb.conf:

          the NetBIOS name of the client machine (very useful).

          This  parameter  is not available when Samba listens on port
445, as clients no longer send this information. If you use this macro
in an include statement on a domain that has a Samba domain
controller be sure to set in the [global] section smb ports = 139. This
will cause Samba to not listen on port 445 and will permit include
functionality to function as it did with Samba 2.x.
