Ok, so lets get back on to the subject.

As far as I am aware, the solaris kernel based cifs doesn't appear to 
support the same "server" features of Samba, but acts more like a dumb 
This will mean it takes some time for something else on the network to 
assume the master browser role, and maintain a browse list.
Much like a bunch of Windows 95's in a workgroup.

The use of static hosts entries may help resolve names more quickly, but 
not populate brower lists.
