nmblookup -M "-" shows two browse masters

I have two subnets, 192.168.1.0 and 192.168.0.0).
I have one router and one winserver combined on one linux box.
I have this in my winserver/router smb.conf:
netbios name = JHAMMER6
os level = 65
preferred master = True
domain master = True
wins support = Yes
In another linux box on one subnet I have this in its smb.conf:
netbios name = HAMMER2
interfaces = 192.168.0.2
wins server = jhammer6
When I run nmblookup -M '-' I get the following:
[root at jhammer6 httpd]# nmblookup -M "-"
INFO: Debug class all level = 1 (pid 5220 from pid 5220)
querying __MSBROWSE__ on 192.168.0.255
My confusion comes in when I seem to have two browse masters.
I am guessing that the router is the browse master for the subnet
192.168.1.0 and that 192.168.0.2 has taken over the job for the other network
I would have thought that os level = 65 in the router's smb.conf would have
made the router the browse master for both subnets.
Any insight appreciated,
