Browser elections on Additonal domain controllers


I wonder if you can help me?

Since i have done a full power down of my network (including switches and all servers) my Additional domain controllers are reporting browser issues for NetBIOS.

BROWSER: serious error: The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{50C38C0F-2DA6-46E1-83FA-4CFBCCBAD50E}.
The backup browser is stopping.

Has anyone experinced this, if so, did you find a workaround?

This is very annoying as these are the only errors being populated in the event logs (i like to keep my network running free from errors :-))

I am using a legacy applciation so still need NetBIOS enabled on the network due to the way it accesses the network shares... I've not noticed an incrrease of network activity to warrant any "Packets" not getting through to the PDC emulator. .. Ping response times to any server is >1ms

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
