Static mappings with SAMBA WINS ?

Here's my stupid question of the month:
I recently replaced my NT WINS server with a SAMBA server - that
went pretty smooth with one exception.
I had put in a static mapping (on the NT WINS server) for a host that
is on another network that we don't manage so our users could
connect to it by just using the name (i.e. '\\foo') instead of the
FQDN (i.e. '\\foo.bar.com') when mapping drives to it or viewing
How does one get the same result using a SAMBA WINS server ? I've
tried adding an entry into the SAMBA 'lmhost' file with no luck.
Is there somewhere else to stick static mappings like this ?
