Try browstat in the resource kit tools for Server 2000 and 2003. 

The default settings for all 2000 and XP server/clients is to
paticipate in the browser master elections by disabling it on
server/workstations you do not want to maintain the master browser

Also note that the master browser list is subnet based, so each subnet
needs it's own master browsers.
