[Samba] How to force Winbind to use port 445 to talk to Windows Active Directory

We have Samba4 installed on CentOS 7.3 and it is integrated with Windows AD for user authentication. Everything is working fine, but we see a lot of Firewall denies on port 139. Upon investigation, I found that Winbindd on my Linux machine is trying to connect to AD on port 139.

I ran 

winbind -i -d 3

and noticed that Winbind tries connecting to Windows AD on port 445 as well port 139. I would like to prevent Winbind from using port 139 to connect to DC. I have added 'disable netbios = Yes' in the Global section of my smb.conf but it did not help.

Any help will be greatly appreaciated.
