OS X Server quits responding to SMB requests.

I have an Apple OS X server that has been driving me crazy.  The office uses it for public files but it quits responding to SMB requests after a couple of hours.  When rebooted it's fine for a while.

Currently running 10.6.5

Where do I need to start to troubleshoot this?

There may be a conflict with another machine taking over the master browser role for the workgroup. Try changing the Mac server's workgroup in the Windows share settings and see if it stays alive.
