WINS.dat question

In the WINS.dat file I see lotsa entries of workgroups and computers. I know 
that WORKGROUP#1B is the DMB.. but what i'm curious about is the 
COMPUTERNAME#xx entries, where xx=00/03/20.  I have one computer that isn't 
properly authenticating to the WINS server (because it has a complicated 
connection); it doesn't get a #20, although it DOES get a #03 and #00.

Please can someone explain what #00 #03 and #20 refer to? Thanks!
