Master browse list incomplete when using smbclient

I recently posted a question on how to get emulate the "net view" command. The answer I
receive was to locate he mster browser.
nmblookup -U wins_server -R -T domain#1b
Then use smbclient to access the master browse list.
smbclient -L master -W domain -N
I tried this and for the most part it worked. I wrote a script to extract
ip/hostname/netbeui name infomation based on the list generated by smbclient.
I then noticed that the clients I was interested in were missing.
Is there anything I could e doing wrong or may be missing from my smb.conf that could cause
and incomplete list?
For the hosts that do not show up, I can still query the wins server if I already have the
hostname. That, however, defeats the automation of the script I made.
I checked out this behavior on a different NT domain and encountered the same problem.
Any suggestions on what I could do will be appreciated.
