Using smbclient to access domain-based DFS shares where the domain name is long

I make a call from an Ubuntu client running smbclient Version 4.3.11-Ubuntu to a domain-based DFS file share path...

root at zfilemgr2-00:/home/smbclient //ztrial2e.local/Shares/sm-0000-002e -U ztrial2e.local/sm-0000-002e

Enter ztrial2e.local/sm-0000-002e's password:
Domain=[ZTRIAL2E] OS=[Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard 9600] Server=[Windows Server 2012 R2 Standard 6.3]
smb: \> exit

It works fine for domain ztriale.local

However if the domain name is longer... supercalifragilisticexpialidocious.local, it fails...

I haven't tried it with higher debug level yet but has anyone else seen this?
