OK.. if it is running inside your jail it doesnt respond to WINS
broadcasts (request for NETBIOS Names.. oi, who is Machine on this
subnet???), if it is not running in your jail, it is.

I wouldn't say "WINS broadcasts" but NetBIOS broadcasts, yes. "Machine"
is jailed Samba 3 server - I want it to be accessible from Windows machines
via \\Machine. But it is not unless I put it out of jail (or turn on WINS in
smb.conf and enter the WINS server IP into Windows clients). Windows machines
don't have the WINS server set - I don't want to use WINS server capability
of Samba (nor of any other server on the network).

So, what are your settings for master (local, domain and wins)?

        wins support = no
        local master = yes
        domain master = yes
        preferred master = yes

can you do a ping to machine? Can it be resolved?

Can you connect smbclient //ipadres?

You mean \\ Yes.

Do you see the smb client listening on the machines virtual ip?

You mean smb server - yes:

root     smbd       1436  18 tcp4    *:*
root     smbd       1436  19 tcp4    *:*
root     nmbd       1430  6  udp4    *:*
root     nmbd       1430  7  udp4    *:*
root     nmbd       1430  8  udp4    *:*
root     nmbd       1430  9  udp4    *:*

in case the above work for you it is all about name resolution.
# man smbclient
Read the first paragraph of servicename on servername resolution.

I know it is all about network resolution. But the question is how to
convince a jailed Samba to reply to NetBIOS broadcasts. I can't find this
in any manual.
