Samba equivalent unicast packet to broadcast and broadcast packet

For all samba 2.x and 3.x
I thing, that is small bug.
If I send not broadcast (Unicast?) packet to broadcast IP of my
subnet, nmbd answer to this packet and I see two samba-server in my
subnet (on real IP and on broadcast IP)
Samba server on 192.168.222.2
Scanning by Lnetscan (for Windows):
//Start of scan
Lserver 192.168.222.2 MAC:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx:xx
Lserver 192.168.222.255 MAC:
//End of scan
I think, that Samba equivalent unicast packet to 192.168.222.255
and Broadcast packet.
Windows is not answer for this packet in difference Samba.
P.S. Sorry for my bad English.
