[Samba] Samba can't find its hostname via broadcast

I'm using Samba 3.0.25a on FreeBSD-6.0. Samba is configured to be a PDC.

Samba can't find its hostname via nmblookup:
$ nmblookup -B frontier
querying frontier on
name_query failed to find name frontier

If I query Samba via unicast, it answers OK:
$ nmblookup -U frontier frontier
querying frontier on frontier<00>

Also, Samba cannot find domain's master, but I suspect it can't become the
master because of this nmblookup failure. I've experienced the similar issue
with other Samba-3.0.26a too. I've gone through Samba troubleshooting, but I
didn't find anything. What could cause this issue?

Thanks in advance,
