NetBios Group Name Lookup?

Anyone know if you can query a netbios group name and get all IPs of clients
that register the group name regardless of what broadcast network their on?
I am trying to implement a getAllByName() function but if I query a WINS
server for a group name it returns a positive name query request with one IP
of I can broadcast the query and collect all responses of
course. Thats what nmblookup does but can only reach the local subnet. In
other words, does WINS have a function that returns _all_ IPs (or names)
associated with a group name? Can I get this info somewhere else?
