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

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?
