The Pi has a fixed IP address and hostname. I see:
$ cat /etc/hostname
$ cat /etc/resolv.conf
# Generated by resolvconf
So the DNS seems arbitrary. I don't understand what the DNS should be for a
home network. Sorry for my ignorance.

You can set the dns domain name on a windows PC, You no doubt have set
the domain name on the Samba server (just a thought, you have given the
Samba server a fixed ipaddress, hostname and domain name, haven't you
?). If your windows PCs have a different or no domain name, this could
be a problem.
