I've had a similar problem.  In my case it was falling out of WINS.  I 
fixed it by stopping and starting nmbd each day.  Here is my crontab 

#Refresh the WINS entry for this Samba Server 
  #First kill the nmbd process 
  2 2 * * * kill `/usr/bin/cat /usr/local/samba/var/locks/nmbd.pid` 
  #One hour and one minute later restart nmbd 
  3 3 * * * /usr/local/samba/sbin/nmbd -D

My samba server "linux-1" (samba-3.0.2-7.FC1) has suddenly become
invisible from all windows client. ......
