Wrong Workgroup Name in Network Neighbourhood

I have installed Samba 2.0.6 on a Compaq Alpha server running Compaq Unix
running OSF1 v4.0 878. My smb.conf file specifies that WORKGROUP=SYDNEY, which
is the name of our NT Domain name. In Network Neighbourhood, however, the Alpha
host appears under the name WORKGROUP by itself instead of with the rest of the
computers in the Sydney domain. We have another Unix box, a Sun, with samba
installed and uses virtually the same entries in the configuration file.

When I view the entries in the Windows NT Server Manager for the SYDNET domain,
I see the Sun box listed as an NT Server 4.2 and the Alpha box as NT Workstation
or Server. I cannot understand how this difference arises. Any clues.
