Are the clients using WINS? Is it the IP of the PDC? You can check with:

C:\>ipconfig /all

If they are not, configure them (ie via DHCP is a convenient way) to use
the samba PDC's IP as only WINS server (if you don't have another WINS
server, but then you must point the Samba PDC at it instead of running a
WINS server on it).

We have been running samba in production as PDC for close on 3 years now ...
