Depending on what protocol you use, it may be normal, as network 
browsing (through netbios or llmnr) is not a required functionality. You 
don't give enough information about you network to tell if it is normal 
or not in your case.

Using smbstatus, you can see which smb protocol is used by each client

If you wand to be sure client machine are using smb3, you have to set 
server min protocol = SMB3
