Samba 3.X PDC is compatible for Windows NT PDC, so NetBIOS name
resolution is required for them to join to the domain.

If your PC-clients locate in different IP subnets from Samba PDC, you
have to configure them as WINS client as you said or configure LMHOSTS
file on each machines correctly.

This problem has nothing to do with setting of "name resolve order".
