[Samba] strange behaviour

Last thursday I've had to restore my customer's pdc from an hdd failure,
and by the evening I restored a full working state of server and
clients, rejoining all of them to the domain.
Next morning the customer called me saying that nothing was working, I
looked the server from remote without finding failures and then I went
there: I found that clients couldn't find the pdc and I struggled with
name resolution, but I didn't get the system up until I put the server's
ip address in the WINS servers list in each client's TCP/IP configuration.
Can someone tell me what could cause this strange issue? I must say that
the server wasn't shut down the thursday evening, only clients were.
What can I do to restore the working state without having to manually
set the WINS server in each client?
Thank you in advance.
