I notice that my NT server got a lot of the following error messages on Event viewer :

Rdr error :

The master browser has received a server announcement from the computer CLIENT1 that believes that it is the master browser for the domain on transport NetBT_Elnk31. The master browser is stopping or an election is being forced.

What is it actually meant to be, and how to solve it.
So far I feel it doesn't give a serious effect on the network, but I need to know why ?

Thanks.

It is not going to affect your Network much.  But, it is a good idea to configure all Win95 machines NOT to act as Browse Masters.  Double click on File and Print Sharing from Network Properties and Disable the Browse List Maintain.  By default it is automatic.  In WinNT WS machines, this can be done by editing the registry.  Go to Browser Key and disable MaintainBrowserList. By doing this, you are enabling only the NT servers to be the Browse Masters.  By default, it is so, but once in a while a 95 box will try to stake the claim.  
Good Luck..
