That is true. You'd need at least one server at each subnet.
But once I did a ugly hack to make it working: I bimapped broadcast addresses
along the subnets. As far as I can remember this worked, but it was just for
fun, I never used it. Also prividing a WINS at SAMBA and using that on the
ppp link was usefull but that was long ago (WinNT WinCE and Samba 1)
