I have a small network with a Linux machine (named CONTEC) and a XP 
machine (named CELERON)
If  issue the command

 smbclient -L localhost -N
Domain=[CONTEC] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.2-7.FC1]
        Sharename      Type      Comment
        ---------      ----      -------
        homes          Disk      Home Directories
        Aurat          Disk      Copia directory HP
        IPC$           IPC       IPC Service (PC Antonio)
        ADMIN$         IPC       IPC Service (PC Antonio)
        HP_Celeron     Printer   Created by redhat-config-printer 0.6.x
        Epson810       Printer   Epson810
        antonio        Disk      Home Directories
Domain=[CONTEC] OS=[Unix] Server=[Samba 3.0.2-7.FC1]
        Server               Comment
        ---------            -------
        Workgroup            Master
        ---------            -------
        WORKGROUP            CELERON

Sometimes I see CELERON as master sometimes CONTEC sometimes blank....and of course if Master is different from CONTEC I can't work with command smb:/// i.e. access the Windos machine.

And here is my samba.conf file

#======================= Global Settings =====================================
	log file = /var/log/samba/%m.log
	load printers = yes
	socket options = TCP_NODELAY SO_RCVBUF=8192 SO_SNDBUF=8192
	null passwords = yes
	username map = /etc/samba/user.map
	encrypt passwords = yes
	public = yes
	wins support = true
	dns proxy = no 
	netbios name = Contec
	server string = PC Antonio
	workgroup = Workgroup
	os level = 50
	printcap name = /etc/printcap
	security = user
	max log size = 50

	comment = Home Directories
	writeable = yes

	browseable = no
	public = yes
	comment = All Printers
	printable = yes
	path = /var/spool/samba

	comment = Copia directory HP
	writeable = yes
	path = /home/antoniomontagnani/HP

Any hint????
