As far as I examined, to use "remote browse sync", both server must be
a domain master, a WINS server and must belong to same workgroup
because Master Announcement packet is used to sync.

In his environment, these 2 domains are set at different workgroup
name, so "remote browse sync" will not work. The description in
smb.conf(5) is not enough, I think.

This does not solve the issue. "remote announce" annouces Samba server
itself only.

I think, it's only idea to solve.
