You need to switch *off* the Windows 95 TCP/IP option:
  Use DNS for WINS name resolution
otherwise it will ask your (or your providers) named for a lot of names
that will never be resolved and constantly trigger dialout. These packets
can be recognised by the 53 port. To see what requests are made, tell
Windows95 to use your debian box as DNS server (as the only one!), set up a
caching named with options

 forwarders {
After starting named give (as root) the command
  kill -WINCH `cat /var/run/named.pid `
and all queries will be logged to /var/log/daemon.log

Broadcasts sent by the Windows box are not a problem, they are not
propagated. Samba needs to be given the "interfaces" and "bind interfaces
only" options otherwise it will periodically send broadcasts to all
