Hai Mourik Jan, 

and you can ping to filehost and filehost.samba.company.com from a windows pc? 
This is something in your resolving setup. 
Are you using bind9 or internal dns.
( i dont have any forwarders in bind ) 

This is what im having in my resolv.conf.
search samba.company.com samba.company2.com
nameserver internetdns1
nameserver internetdns2
