I suppose you could try using NetBIOS scopes.  From the nmbd manpage:

}        -i scope
}               This  specifies  a NetBIOS scope that nmbd will use
}               to communicate with when generating NetBIOS  names.
}               For  details  on  the  use  of  NetBIOS scopes, see
}               rfc1001.txt and  rfc1002.txt.  NetBIOS  scopes  are

}               are the system administrator in charge of  all  the
}               NetBIOS systems you communicate with.

The clients you want to appear in the browselist would need to
be using the same scope.  Never tried it...but it does exist.
