How are connected your branc offices? Are they communicating trough a
VPN connection? If yes, then I think that NetBIOS among other
broadcast traffic will not pass trough this VPN connection.

So all the remote users have to do is poing to the Samba server by its
IP address and their corresponding share name. Something like this it

Once connected, they will be able to use that share as a drive.
