Blocking Browsing for Terminal Servers in the RDP Client

I have 3 terminal servers setup in a network load balancing arrangement.  All users are supposed to use the IP address for the cluster but there are a number of users that continue to use the old IP addresses.  I will change the current IP addresses but the issues is that if the uses hit browse in the RDP client it will just bring the individual servers up by name.  Is there a way thru a GPO maybe that will prevent those servers from appearing when the clients hit browse?

If you disable NetBIOS over TCP/IP on those servers they should disappear from the network browse list after a short period of time.
