NetBIOS's Datagram Distribution Service
NetBIOS's datagram distribution service is the part of the NetBIOS-over-TCP/UDP protocol suite for connectionless communication. NetBIOS provides services related to the session layer of the OSI model allowing applications on separate computers to communicate over a local area network. NetBIOS's datagram distribution service provides a connectionless service which means that the error detection and recovery are the application responsibility.
NetBIOS's Session Service
NetBIOS's session service is the part of the NetBIOS-over-TCP/UDP protocol suite for connection oriented communication. NetBIOS provides services related to the session layer of the OSI model allowing applications on separate computers to communicate over a local area network. NetBIOS's session service allows two machines to form a connection, mechanisms for error detection and recovery and multiple packets messages.
