When I browse for more in remote desktop I am missing servers

I have 2 servers that I don't see when I "browse for more" in the address pull down of the Remote Desktop application.  I'm not sure if that would be DNS, WINS or NetBIOS?

I do see them when I browse the network through the "Network Neiborhood" and I can access them.  I have shares pointing to one of them.  One of them is an Exchange server, if that makes any difference, I don't see where it would though.

If you give direct hostname of the server are you able to connect to server ?

Yes, by name or IP.  They are completely accessible.  I just can't figure out why they are not in that one browse list.  How does the Remote Desktop app enumerate the entries for it's browse list I wonder?

It connects because in system Properties you have selected Allow Remote Desktop Connection
But when you browse in RDP connection it tries to contact any Terminal server.
Defaultly We only allow RDP not configuring Terminal services.
