I had (and still do, really) a similar problem. Has to do with nmb failing to respond. When they disappear, try running
"smbcontrol nmbd ping" on the samba server and see if it responds with pong.
I have not yet figured out why nmbd stops responding. The error logs have offered no clue. BTW, samba is running on SuSe SLES 9.

Subject: [Samba] Servers disappear from Network neighborhood
I am using Samba-PDC-LDAP with samba-3.0.20b-1. On my file servers I am
I'm not sure exactly what is happening but every couple of weeks the
file servers disappear form network neighborhood. I checked browstat on
my Windows system and it points to my PDC as the master browser and I
checked the wins.dat file on my PDC and the systems were there. I did
not check the browse.dat file before correcting this latest problem (by
restarting the nmbd service on the systems in question). Is there a
relationship between samba versions and systems dropping out of network
neighborhood? What does this indicate when a system drops out of
network neighborhood, is it not reporting correctly to the master browser?
