I re-answer to myself... I've found the problem.

The "offender was:

	wins support = no

In my /etc/samba/smb.conf. When the domain was created it was 'yes', but after some 
problems with a vserver virtual machine I set it to false. That was about two months ago.

After I setted it to 'yes' and adjusted dnsmasq to serve it clients all worked again :)
