[Samba] Samba Domain Confusion

I have two Samba NT domains, in each domain the Network Browser for 
Windows shows two Workgroups. One with the name of the server and one 
with the actual domain name. The Server also shows up properly in the 
domain list.

This seems to be an error, probably in my configuration.

# Global parameters
        workgroup = ORLEANS
        server string = %h server (Samba, Ubuntu)
        obey pam restrictions = Yes
        passdb backend = tdbsam, guest
        passwd program = /usr/bin/passwd %u
        passwd chat = *Enter\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n 
*Retype\snew\sUNIX\spassword:* %n\n .
        syslog = 0
        log file = /var/log/samba/log.%m
        max log size = 1000
        logon path = \\%N\%U\.profile
        logon drive = U
        domain logons = Yes
        os level = 64
        preferred master = Yes
        domain master = Yes
        dns proxy = No
        ldap ssl = no
        panic action = /usr/share/samba/panic-action %d
        invalid users = root
        admin users = root, administrator
        create mask = 0664
        directory mask = 0775

Any idea where I can look to eliminate the Server Name Domain this?
