Based on my knowledge, Windows Vista require NetBIOS over TCP/IP port 139
since Windows Vista does not add the RAS adapter GUID for SMB to the
lanmanserver, lanmanworkstation, and SMB registry keys. It's a known bug on
Windows Vista and it have been fixed in Windows Vista SP1. So, Windows
Vista SP1 doesn't require NetBIOS over TCP/IP port 139 to connect to
fileshares over VPN connections.

For your reference:

Windows Vista clients cannot access network shares over a VPN or dial-up

You cannot access SMB shares on a corporate network through a Remote Access
Service (RAS) connection from a computer that is running Windows Vista;EN-US;933468

Hope it helps.
