[Samba] Samba name resolution (?) over VPN

I have a Win2K Small Business Server which is also a PDC (sbsserver).
I have added a FreeBSD box running Samba 3.0.28 as a member server
I can mount shares offered by both the sbsserver and samba_server fine when I
do it on the local network.
However, when I connect through a VPN, I can only mount \\sbsserver\share. I
cannot mount \\samba_server\share, but I can mount \\10.10.10.254\share -
10.10.10.254 is the IP address of samba_server.
I can ping both sbsserver and samba_server fine over the VPN.
The VPN connection is set to use sbsserver for DNS lookup.
The VPN is PPTP running on m0n0wall.
I have checked and checked again my configuration, and I can't find anything
obviously wrong - would you please help?
