Add the next 4 lines to [global] and restart samba:

domain master = Yes
local master = Yes
preferred master = Yes
os level = 65

This must work if samba is configured properly. If it is not working 
send a copy of smb.conf and a short description of the nnetwork 
(interface, IP address, if you have a LAN or connected to the 
internet etc.)
