[Samba] Samba WINS fails to resolve isolated name

We've got Samba acting as our WINS server. All appears to be operating
correctly except for a single NT 4 server which the WINS server won't

	- The server is NT4 Server with Exchange.
	- It does have the address specified in the network settings and is
using the WINS server for its own resolutions.
	- There are wins.dat entries for this server.

So why do I get:

$nmblookup -U -R server1
querying server1 on
name_query failed to find name server1

Thanks in advance,

Fedora Core 2 2.6.5-1.358/Samba 3.0.4
