Thanks, that's a good point and an interesting read. However, neither
MS16-098 nor MS16-087 apply to my situation, because I noticed the issue
back in April, well before these bulletins.
After some debugging I also noticed that the same issue occurs sometimes
when using FQDN.
Why is it trying DFS? What can I do to imitate that mystic DnsOnWire
