The findsmb command present in SnowLeopard and older, is not available from terminal in Lion. Is there an equivalent?

Its looks like you should be able to re install it yourself manually.

  1. Install samba3 using MacPorts
  2. Put the contents of the source for findsmb perl script into a file named findsmb, make it executable in using chmod and then add it your path to regain the findsmb program.

Try using smbutil lookup to resolve IP to NetBIOS names
