Look at the "smbcontrol" command.

Did you try to increase "os level" ?
Also, read the man page for the "domain master" parameter.
From smb.conf man page:
preferred master (G)
This boolean parameter controls if nmbd(8) is a preferred master
browser for its workgroup.
If this is set to yes, on startup, nmbd will force an election, and
it will have a slight advantage in winning the election. *It is
recommended that this parameter is used in conjunction with domain
master = yes, so that nmbd can guarantee becoming a domain master.*
