Default Significance of "nb" in binary package name?

I was perusing the NetBSD package binaries and noticed that some are tagged with "nb"
For example:
What does "nb" signify and are these packages preferable over non-nb packages?

Thanks in advance

I believe it must be the patch level, the highest number being for the latest (i.e. the most secure/stable) version.

have a look at
Code:
http://nyftp.netbsd.org/pub/NetBSD-daily
you probably either want to choose HEAD or netbsd-6. Once in there, choose a branch by the date and then choose iso, which is easy to overlook in there among all the architectures. (NOTE: If you ever want source, there is a directory there for it too.) Once you're in iso/, you can choose the one for your desired arch, e.g., NetBSD-6.0_BETA-i386.iso if you took the netbsd-6 turn at the first corner.
