Netbios works by intercepting messages on the broadcast address on the 
network segment (I hope that I explained that OK!). In general, broadcast 
traffic does not cross routers.

Read Browsing.txt for more information (it comes with the samba source 
distribution).  One solution would be to set up a WINS server to resolve 
the queries for you.
