When does Windows 7 use HOST and when does it use LMHOST?

LMHost is used for NetBios name to IP address resolution. This functionality is similar to WINS. HOST is used for Fully Qualified Domain Names to IP address resolution and is more similar to DNS. As for the exact order of resolution methods, I’m finding documentation that is all over the place.
