Is this an AD domain (i.e you did a classic upgrade) or still a 
"classic" domain.    With a classic domain, NetBios-over-TCP and WINS 
are still important. Generally tho I saw the reverse when clients 
connecting via VPN or a router could connect to IP addresses but not 
names (even though DNS was set up correctly.)

Also I have NOT had luck getting SMB v2 working reliably with Samba 3.x 
-  which is probably not related.
