DNS hostname from a Mac to a Windows machine

I couldn't figure out why when trying to use a host name, like I would on windows, it wouldn't work.  It seems that it requires ".local" after the hostname.  I can now ping the hosts and map the drives by the hostnames, but dns still won't work.  If I find out more I'll update this post.
