Just noticed that according to SWAT and the man page "dns proxy = on" is the default. Presumably, it wasn't in the past and I'd never turned it on. I've been re-using the same smb.conf for ages and several versions now ...

Thanks for the note. That looks exactly right. Not sure how I missed dns proxy and its implications, I've been Samba'ing for several years now and thought I'd seen most problems. The man page makes it pretty clear that this is what I need. Time to RTFM again 8)
However, it doesn't explain how boxes "disappear" from nmbd. The worst affendors seem to be smbd's and not NT boxen 8(
