It seems, in any case, that there must be an LMB for a workgroup/ntdomain
on the local LAN or you will see the workgroup/ntdomain but never be able
to access the servers.

I've added a DMB for ntdomain URQ on the third subnet.
However, since there is no member of workgroup/ntdomain URQ on Lan1, there
is no host willing to become an LMB for URQ on Lan1. The means we have
the same problem. There is no way to request a list of browsers from the
Master, so there is no way to send the ennumeration request.
In this particular case, a client on Lan1 could, in theory, send a request
to DMB:URQ. I don't think that this actually happens, though.
Geez I need a test lab.
