Allow NetBT queries for fully qualified domain names

Description:

Specifies that NetBIOS over TCP/IP (NetBT) queries are issued for fully qualified domain names.

If you disable this policy setting, or if you do not configure this policy setting, NetBT queries will only be issued for single-label names such as "example" and not for multi-label and fully qualified domain names.
