[Samba] Problem with two subnets

A really annoying question.
I'm managing a high school network with two WinXP subnets (192.168.1.X and 192.168.3.X).
These subnets are linked by a SUSE 9.3 server with two network cards and a Samba server (version 3.0.12-5 SUSE) acting as PDC.
The /etc/smb/smb.conf has next lines:
wins support = yes
hosts allow = 192.168.3. 192.168.1.
interfaces =
Now, for the problem:
In the morning first hour, the first user must log on at a 192.168.3.X host. If I try first with a 192.168.1.X host, next message appears:
--System cannot log you on because Domain xxxxx is not available---
Next, I log on at a 192.168.3.X host without any problem, and everything works OK in the two subnets for the rest of the day.
Problem repeats netx day, and so on. I can't understand what's the matter. It seems that 192.168.3. subnet acts as a "starter" for the Samba server, but I don't know why.
Please can anyone help me??
Thanks in advance.
