I've noticed that if I remove the "socket address = 172.19.255.255" and the issue a recursive unicast nmblookup it works.
In fact from the nmblookup man page
-R Set the recursion desired bit in the packet to do a recursive lookup. This is used when sending a name query to a machine running a WINS server and the user wishes to query the names in the WINS server. If this bit is unset the normal (broadcast responding) NetBIOS processing code on a machine is used instead. See RFC1001, RFC1002 for details.
[root at hor-lnx01 ~]# nmblookup -U wins-hor -R hor-lnx01
added interface ip=172.19.5.1 bcast=172.19.255.255 nmask=255.255.0.0
querying hor-lnx01 on 172.19.5.2
Got a positive name query response from 172.19.5.2 ( 172.19.5.1 )
[root at hor-lnx01 ~]#
Finally got a wins replication + dns dynamic update working like a charm :-)
