On any NetBIOS network, there should be one, and only one WINS server.
This server should be notified to DHCP clients by setting it in DHCP
(dhcpd.conf for the ISC DHCP server), and manually configured on all
Samba and fixed-address machines.
A Samba server becomes the one wins server for the network by setting
'wins support = yes'.
