If you can't access the clients 
then you can't do anything to help them resolve each other's names. 

If you can't access the clients then this is not your problem anyway -
forget about it or tell the administrator of the clients to configure
them to talk to your WINS server.

The Domain master browser is not a workstation - it should not be turned
off very often.

I've not tried it myself but I think samba's WINS server can handle many
workgroups. - but this is irrelevant if you can't use wins

good luck
