[Samba] NT4 WINS Server forgets samba servers

I do not know whether this is a samba problem or an NT feature, but it 
seems only to occur with samba boxes, so it could be samba's fault:

The NT PDC (moritz) runs also the WINS server. It regularly forgets the 
IP addresses of our samba servers:

# nmblookup -U moritz -R hni-gate
querying hni-gate on
name_query failed to find name hni-gate

I then just have to stop and start the nmbd on the samba server and 
everything is fine again.

This happens about every two weeks or so. Has anybody experienced 
anything similar and has an idea about how to stop it?
