It will first look at your hosts file, the try to resolve the hostname with an operating system function (DNS) then WINS and then broadcast.
You can force Samba to change the sequence adding the following command to the [Global} section of samba configuration file
name resolve order = wins lmhosts bcast host
To do that you need to go into terminal as administrator and enter
sudo pico /etc/smb.conf
Reboot the machine and it should be ok
If this does not work just put in your NAS name in the hosts file that always works.
