In testing with 0.6.6, I've got both an NT4 and W2K system which are not
domain members which are also refusing to provide the browse list when I
use anonymous login.  In other words, it seems that with NT4 and beyond,
it is easy to configure the server to deny access.  I don't have an
NTdomain to test against, so I don't know how accessing a browse list is
impacted by domain membership.
