WINS + browsing question

I'm not sure that this is a general question, so I emailed it to both the
samba and samba-technical lists.
I have a very complicated network setup, with multiple remote subnets, some
tunneled in, and other such quirks. I've successfully made all of the
machines (some linux some M$) correctly enlist themselves in ONE WINS-server
provided by Samba 2.0.x . I can look at wins.dat, and see all the machines
properly listed, with the right IPs, and the correct <1B> designations etc
from primary domain masters, and all that jazz.
HOWEVER... the problem is that this same samba machine never updates its own
browse list (browse.dat) from the wins server! So whilst the wins.dat file
will have everything, the browse.dat will have very few machines, only the
ones that the wins-server can see locally. Why is this? How can I force the
browse list to be updated from the wins server on the SAME machine? I'm
experimenting with "remote browse synch", but have had no love yet.
Many thanks to anyone who can shed light on this subject!
