[Figure 3.10: Hidden Workgroups]

The ARTHROPODS and MAMMALS workgroups are isolated because there is no subnet on which they both have a Local or Domain Master Browser. Workgroups normally find one another by broadcasting DomainAnnouncement messages on the local LAN. Samba can query the NBNS to find Domain Master Browsers on remote subnets, and synchronize with them to merge isolated Browse Lists.
