We have been seeing some event errors related to the Master Browser service. I ran browstat status and found that the Master Browser is not our SBS 2008 box, but a different server on our network with three other servers listed as backup - our SBS 2008 box and one other server are not shown at all.  I looked at the Computer Browser service on the SBS 2008 box and it is listed as disabled.  

Would it be recommended to set the service on the SBS 2008 box to Automatic/Delayed start or Automatic? Then set all the other servers to disabled or will I need at least one other server set to Auto for backup purposes.
