have a look on the samba web site.  examine the ftp contributed dir, you
are looking for samba-1.9.17-multiworkgroup.tar.gz

examine the design restructuring in nmbd.  that version of samba was
capable of being a domain master browser for any domains you told it to

if you want that functionaliity, i suggest that you attempt to recreate it
in samba cvs main (3.0).

best regards,
