Win2k Server Browser Error- Need Help!

In my domain here at work our PDC is a Win2003 Server. It is the Domain Naming Master, Master Browser, RID master, Schema Master, Global Catalog, and the PRIMARY DNS server. This serve's name is 2003BOX

The server in question is Windows 2000 Server with SP4- and is a domain controller, Infrastructure master, File server, Primary WINS, and SECONDARY DNS server. This server's name is 2000BOX.

I arrived this morning to find the following errors on the Win2k server:

Error #1
Computer: 2000BOX
EventID: 8021
Category: None

The browser was unable to retrieve a list of servers from the browser master \\2003BOX on the network \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{384D5D8F-DB9C-4749-A2FB-E64BC08C9F4D}. The data is the error code.

Error #2
Computer: 2000BOX
EventID: 8032
Category: None

The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{384D5D8F-DB9C-4749-A2FB-E64BC08C9F4D}. The backup browser is stopping.

What is going on here and how should I go about troubleshooting and fixing this??? I need more then EventID.net
