Browse master, browse list, but no response to browse requests?

On 1.9.18p4 . This is a switched network with other machines on it...
basically the other machines in this workgroup *should* either be
'95 or samba servers. The three server versions on the three samba
servers are...
"Samba 1.9.18p4" "Samba 1.9.17p4"  "Samba 1.9.16p9"

Problem is that the 1.9.16p9 (we've got this for historical reasons -
NTrigue wouldnt talk to the later versions) always ends up being the
browse master, even though no other machine will talk to it.

ie: you can't get a browse list for this network, because they all
think that the 1.9.18p4 machine is the master, but that machine
refuses to hand over its browse list[1]; and the 1.9.16p9 machine
gets a browse list when I told it not to. AAAGH.

        HELP!
