hi Gabor,
are you trying to share over SMB between the jails? 
between the hosts and the jails? 
you may want to explain your plans... using NAT for netbios seems a bit
overkill to me, unless you plan to send SMB packets over the larger
internet...which in itself seems a bad idea.

If you only need SMB across different LAN segments, setup WINS server(s) (MS or
from the Samba project).
