I wouldn't say "WINS broadcasts" but NetBIOS broadcasts, yes. "Machine"
is jailed Samba 3 server - I want it to be accessible from Windows machines
via \\Machine. But it is not unless I put it out of jail (or turn on WINS in
smb.conf and enter the WINS server IP into Windows clients). Windows machines
don't have the WINS server set - I don't want to use WINS server capability
of Samba (nor of any other server on the network).

wins support = no
local master = yes
domain master = yes
preferred master = yes

You mean smb server - yes:

I know it is all about network resolution. But the question is how to
convince a jailed Samba to reply to NetBIOS broadcasts. I can't find this
in any manual.
