[Samba] Two WINS servers on different subnets

If I connect two LANs (on different subnets) and want to use windows 
filesharing, I need a WINS server right? Can I have one server on both 
subnets and make them "talk to each other" ? The problem is that the two 
networks are connected through a VPN tunnel and I don't want to place a 
WINS server on just one of them in case the VPN tunnel is lost. I want 
the subnets to work normal when they're not connected and when they got 
connection they should work like one big network. Is this possible?

Thanks in advance
