os level (G)
This integer value controls what level Samba advertises itself as for
browse elections. The value of this parameter determines whether nmbd(8)
has a chance of becoming a local master browser for the WORKGROUP in the
local broadcast area.
Note :By default, Samba will win a local master browsing election over
all Microsoft operating systems except a Windows NT 4.0/2000 Domain
Controller. This means that a misconfigured Samba host can effectively
isolate a subnet for browsing purposes. See BROWSING.txt in the Samba
docs/ directory for details.
Default: os level = 20
Example: os level = 65
