Re: servers using netbios??

In your config, do you have either of these options checked:

TCP/IP -> Advanced -> DNS -> Register this connection's address in DNS

TCP/IP -> Advanced -> WINS -> Enabled LMHOSTS lookup AND for NetBIOS
settings: Default or Enable

If so, uncheck "Register this connection's address in DNS" because the
root servers don't care about your dns entry.  And if you have LMHOSTS
and/or NetBIOS over TCPIP, Windows will do some "window's name
resolution" which is over UDP on ports 135-139.
