Yes, but if you have have a WINS server, the local master browsers in 
each subnet (elected by the machines in each subnet), send the names to 
the domain master browser. And then you have a network wide browsing list.

This works great in a Samba NT4-style domain. But in a Samba AD, the 
smbd does doesn't have browsing support yet. So there's no network 
neighborhood at the moment.
