[Samba] how to check IP addresses of machines in the network?

This post is similar to what I posted yesterday '"smbclient -L host" to 
list IP addresses - possible?'.

I have a PDC in one place and many workstations in different other 
places connected using WAN/VPN.

These workstations have rather changing IPs assigned by DHCP.

Sometimes I need to connect to these machines using VNC, for example, 
connect to machine AC-PC001 to show something to the user or fix 
something when a user is not there.

However, smbclient -L pdc gives me only netbios names, and not IP addresses:

$ smbclient -L pdc
         Server               Comment
         ---------            -------

How can I list workstations with their netbios names and corresponding 
IP addresses?
