[Figure 3.11: Multiple Virtual Networks]

A node with NetBIOS bound to two transport protocols is logically connected to two separate virtual NetBIOS LANs.

Consider what happens when node STEFFOND wins the Browser Election on the IP LAN, after which node CONRAD calls for an election on the NetBEUI LAN, and wins. Because the two nodes are not on the same (virtual) LAN, they do not know that they are competing.
