Don't know. Are you sure that the clients are set up with the correct 
wins server (or at all)?

Only local file dealing with netbios lookup should be lmhosts but that 
shouldnt be used when
using wins. Btw: there is a setting on "node type" that determines the 
search order on the
client. You want "hybrid" which means use wins first, then broadcast.
