Setup one of the samba servers as a wins server ('wins support = yes') and
setup the other one to report to it for wins ('wins server = ip addr of
wins server')

well...sort of, for your main smb.conf have something like the following:

netbios name = encrypted
netbios aliases = not_encrypted
config file = /usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf.%L
...normal smb.conf for encrypted...

then create a totally seperate smb.conf.not_encrypted with:
netbios name = encrypted
netbios aliases = not_encrypted
...normal smb.conf for not encrypted...

This may also be possible simply by using the 'include = ' flag with %L
substitution to specify the special options for encrypted and non encrypted
while keeping a central config file.
