remote subnet browsing and NT4.0SP3

I have a samba 1.9.18p4 server running as a domain master browser on a subnet,
with some clients distributed on other subnets.
If there are only Win 95 clients on a subnet, browse sync works - but not if
there are Win NT 4.0 SP3 machines on that subnet.

Error from nmdb (at log level 3):

sync_with_lmb: Initiating sync with local master browser MAILHEIDELBERG<0x20>

The browse sync connection should be made
as an anonymous (guest) user - so check guest is
allowed on the IPC$ share.


Is this also true for NT4.0SP3 machines ?
Does MS sync browse lists this way between two NT Servers ?

Sorry if this is an FAQ - please point me the right direction.

Thanks for any help/ideas and for samba.
