Hopefully someone will correct me if I'm wrong (please...),
but as far as I know, the only valid WINS configuration is to
have exactly one WINS server for a given domain.  WINS servers
can't sync, so if you have more than one, you would have two
different, inconsistent view of the NetBIOS names available
within the domain.
