It occurred also to me, with a 100% win2000 (PDC and WS) network:
wins is based on broadcasts. so these does not passed the routers, and
yes, they need some time to propagate, even 4 or more hours !

first open a share on the PDC, calling it with the IP.
This will of course authenticate since it must know who is the PDC and
has not to resort on any NS resolution.
Then log on the other server.
