Don't really know, but I think Win9x can NOT synchronize with a DMB.

Assume you have 3 subnets and 4 workgroups, then you have
1 WINS Server
5 Domain Master Browsers
12 Local Master Browsers
Remote announce is not needed in case you have a correct wins
setup. At the very least the local master browsers must be correctly
configured as wins clients. Then everybody else should 'see' the
network neighborhood. Accessibility of the other machines depends upon
correct wins configuration.
