Why does Windows need UDP connection from workstation UPD 138 and 389 to domain server it doesn't authenticate to?

Our workstations authenticate to a local DC.  From analyzing network traffic, they also seem to connect to UDP 138 and 389.  I'm not sure why.  Can anyone provide good solid explinations?  The stations don't seem to work otherwise.

UDP 138 is just NetBIOS.  The UDP 389 is LDAP ping.  Why is that needed?  There are ACL's blocking.  Any reason why these serves provent the station from functioning?

The other server was the first DC.  It is at another site.  The local server is at our site.  Both are the same domain.  Both are DCs.  The stations log in to the local DC as they should.  They have the UDP connection attempts to the far DC.  I'm trying to determine why.  There are denies on network syslog for those services and probably prevent some things like changing passwords, etc.  Any idea why?
