you can solve it with i.e openvpn TAP interface tunnel ending either on
the samba server itself or at the vpn gateway with samba installed too (
configure browsing proxy etc) , but for sure it will take some time
until the browse lists are in sync. Using links or static shares maybe
better option then trust and wait on browsing
