NetBIOS name resolution failing

My network utilizes a WINS server. The WINS server itself can not be accessed using NetBIOS name resolution. All other machines are working and communicating properly with the WINS server in order to resolve NetBIOS names. Where should I start to troubleshoot this?

Is it configured to use itself as the WINS server?

Commented:
Check to see if its configured to use itself for name resolution. The other method is to flush the cache info. Try using the nbtstat command. By the way, if you have upgraded to Windows 2008 try using Globalnames.
