No. Or probably not, as you haven't mentioned which services you are running,
but NMBCLUSTERS is supposed to be self-tuning unless you override it yourself.
Something like Apache or sendmail or SSH would complain about ENOBUFS/"out
of network buffer space" errors to their logfiles if they were not able to
listen for incoming connections.
More probably, you have some kind of intermittant hardware failure, but
diagnosing the issue using ping and tcpdump would be a lot more useful.
