NO, you do not need remote browse sync if you have samba4wins working.
And you need only following to make it work in your LMB smb.conf
wins server = your.samba4wins.host
If your smaba4wins is on the same host as your LMB, put this is your
bind interfaces only=yes
interfaces=your.samba4wins.ip (suggestion use a virt ip not used by samba)
In your windows clients network configuration set wins1 your first
samba4wins and wins2 the second samba4wins.

As far as I examined, "remote browse sync" did not work as I expected.
Sample smb.conf that I examined the behavior is:
workgroup = SAMBAxx
domain master = yes
wins support = yes
remote browse sync = x.x.x.x
Samba has to be WINS server and DMB.
