I experienced something similar once, and I *believe* that you might need a
PDC (or at least some sort of DC) in each subnet to get resolution via
hostname (or, more exactly, "windows machine name"). I forget why this needs
to be done however.
One temporary solution is to access the boxes via IP address instead of
hostname... So instead of accessing \\mybox <file://\\mybox> , you would
access \\10.0.0.1 <file://\\10.0.0.1> (assuming that was the IP for the
machine called "mybox").

I recently changed an NT client from a static IP address to
a DHCP address in a new subnet. Now I cannot reach all
3 Samba servers that I have. Any idea why?
One clue I have is that the machine is now not visible via
DNS as it has been fed a dynamic address. Do I need to
use Dynamic DNS for this to work?
