Ah tracked this down to being that iptables default firewall rules don't 
let master server broadcasts through. Turning off iptables make 
smbclient -L localhost -N show that the master server is being 
recognised as the master server, but STILL Network Servers or smb:// do 
not show any clients. I'm baffled....
