You should setup DHCP server to anounce samba server as WINS server to
all hosts
if you are using ISC-DHCPD then add this lines into dhcpd.conf

option netbios-name-servers 123.456.789.012;
#                           ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
#                            put your ip here
option netbios-node-type 8;

if your DHCP is Microsoft's, then setup the scope accordingly

also, make sure nmbd is running as well on samba box

and one last thing - make sure there are this lines in your smb.conf:

wins support = yes
os level = 64
preferred master = yes
domain master = yes
local master = yes
