[Samba] adding netbios name stops getent from working

I have a Samba file server which is part of an AD domain.  I can ssh to 
the server using my AD username/password.  I can also mount my home 
directory under Windows.  Everything works as I expect. However, I need 
to give the server an alias.  If I use "netbios name" to set that alias 
in smb.conf, then "getent passwd <user>" stops working, and I can no 
longer login.  Why is that?
