  domain master=yes used to be standard for stand-alone to cause nmbd claim a
special domain specific NetBIOS name as a domain master browser (based on the
os level/preferred master election rules)

  man smb.conf does not mention any discontinuation for use in stand-alone
mode. Should it not be used any longer in that role, or is it a matter of
network scale?
