[Samba] Questions about PDC with SAMBA

I have 8 subnets:
etc ...

Install a Primary Domain Controller (PDC), so that
users to perform authentication on the domain with its mounting
remote disks, among others. The network is correctly configured,
that is, the teams are perfectly by "ping" and the open
ports between the networks see no problems.

- I disabled the multicast UDP in the route
- Add the lines in the smb.conf:
  - Hosts allow = 192.168.100. 192.168.150. 192.168.200. [......]
The others go right, because as I said it all works
this, but only for the subnet.
- Customers and resolve the server name netbios (wins OK)

However, I encountered only heard the PDC requests only
on its subnet (192.168.200.z).

* Questions:
- Why if the machines are visible between them they are not able to
hear the requests to the PDC?
- Is there another method instead of putting 8 samba servers in each subnet?
