Is the wins server address configured in the PDCs?  I thought the way 
this was supposed to work was that the master browsers on each subnet 
would update their addresses to the wins server - and that a pdc would 
always be the master browser on its subnet.  If the wins address is 
configured, are there firewalls between them?
