What machine is this showing up on?  And what version of the 
samba code is the server running? Finally, are you using WINS.
Also what security level (server, domain, etc...) is the 
problem server running at?

What I am assuming is that you have a Samba PDC and a second 
samba server (version??)  both in the same domains.  The second
server is giving the message in an attempt to sync the browse 

The <1b> record is the group name and IP address of the 
Domain Master Browser (the PDC).  For some reason the
second server cannot resolve the DOMAINNAME<1b> registration 

Could you send more details?
