You want some form of NBNS replication amongst the servers.  Microsoft's
WINS can do this, but we haven't bothered to figure it out.  There are
some limitations, I think. 

There is some level of "demand" but it's not as high on the priority list. 
A few folks have talked about it.

Anyone currently working on NBNS replication for Samba right now?
