That's not entirely true.

I have nmbd running solely as a WINS server to satisfy one WinCE and one
Win98 machine on the Household Network, and smbd is not running on that
machine at all.  Likewise, nmbd is not necessary in order to use SMB to
export files; you can run smbd alone and make use of DNS for name resolution
on WinXX machines.
