In the settings of the IP protocol of the network adapter you can find 
in the DNS tab a checkbox 'register adresses of this connection in DNS' 
(don't know the exact english wording).

Here is a description about dynamic DNS update:
You can try forcing your machine to update the DNS registration:
# ipconfig /registerdns

I'm not sure if you can do this. The samba DNS is authorative for the 
zone. Why should not resolvable records of it's own zone forwarded to a 
foreign server?
