Dear Maintainer,

tracking down several (local?) issues with winbind I think, I found a typo in

After booting winbind is "active", but does not resolve DC's hostname (checking
the NETLOGON for domain[XYZ] dc connection to "" failed).

The line in /lib/systemd/system/winbind.service is:
After=network.target nmb.service

There is no service nmb, just nmbd

So shouldn't it be:
After=network.target nmbd.service

After that I still have some problems, but at least winbind finds its DC.
