Samba will do a broadcast name resolution to look up the hostname of the
target.  This is in line with expected windows behaviour we are asked to
eumulate.

Unless helped otherwise (ip_conntrack_netbios_ns) it does not know that
the unicast datagram in return is to be matched to the outbound
broadcast.
