[Samba] no wins registering?

  I have multiple samba servers.  smb1 is my master, smb2 is a slave.
My master has this:

  name resolve order=wins hosts bcast
  #   wins server=
  wins support=yes

The Slave has this:
  name resolve order=wins hosts bcast
  #   wins server=<IP OF Master>
  wins support=no

After 24 hours the Master forgets who the slave is.  If I restart the
slave he notifies the master who updates his wins.dat happily.  Why is
the master forgetting who the slave is?  I can't get management to buy
off on a cronjob that restarts samba every morning.

Please CC me on any replies as I'm not on the list,
