Is a WINS server/WINS infrastructure required to use CIFS with passthru
domain authentication and XP clients?

If I specfiy the PDC emulator server by name and IP address in the CIFS
configuration, and have DNS entries for the CIFS server name in the DNS
zones that the XP clients use - is there any issue with NOT running WINS
at all anywhere on the network? Presumably I would just leave the WINS
entry under CIFS configuration blank?
