'Master browser election broadcasts' != 'broadcast-based name resolution.'

I have measured significant broadcast traffic reduction when migrating from non-WINS to WINS SMB/CIFS name resolution.

But this is straying quite far from the OP's question (he doesn't appear to be on a routed network, for one) and from the topic of the list.
