Server is receiving incorrectly formatted request

I have a Windows NT 4.0 box with SP6a installed. I'm getting Event ID 2006, "The server received and incorrectly formatted request from Win2k-server." The Win2k server is my backup machine. I have SP4 installed there. Other NT systems in my domain are backing up without a problem. So what gives? The now "problem" box has never had any issues communicating with any of my other 10 Win2k servers.
I'm not sure of what the problem really is, but check out this document from Microsoft. This Microsoft Web site could also be helpful.
