It's looking for a Domain Master Browser.  This is normal behavior for a 
Local Master Browser on a subnet.  By default, a Samba server can become 
a LMB and that seems to be what has happened here.

A LMB will try, every 15 minutes, to syncronize with a DMB.  To do this, 
it must first find a DMB.  The message is telling you that it's failing 
to find the DMB.

One easy solution that works if you don't have an NT Domain Controller 
for TRAX is to let the Samba server be the DMB.

See the 'domain master' option in smb.conf(5) or your favorite Samba book.
