What would cause this networked machine (Mac) to be logging 8021 and 8032 master browser errors on my servers?

All my servers are logging 8021 and 8032 master browser errors (below).  They appear to be referring to a Mac on network named, “KDavis”.  I have very little experience with Macs but don’t believe it has WINS running.  What could be causing it to throw these types of errors on my Server 2003 SP2 boxes?

Warning Event ID 8021

The browser service was unable to retrieve a list of servers from the browser master \\KDAVIS on the network \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{AC4E8192-7A00-4785-9C46-986CC05A063D}.
 
 Browser master: \\KDAVIS
 Network: \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{AC4E8192-7A00-4785-9C46-986CC05A063D}
 
 This event may be caused by a temporary loss of network connectivity. If this message appears again, verify that the server is still connected to the network. The return code is in the Data text box.

Error Event ID 8032

The browser service has failed to retrieve the backup list too many times on transport \Device\NetBT_Tcpip_{AC4E8192-7A00-4785-9C46-986CC05A063D}. The backup browser is stopping.

also track down the computer KDAVIS and check it's authorised for use on your network?

e.g. does it have a domain account?

OK, I am very new to Macs but that is very strange.  When I looked at the machine it was on my domain but I just checked AD after hanccocka's post and it isn't in there.

Sigh, I am going to have to learn Macs!

Check who's machine it is, and whether they are allowed to connect to your network? I don't know what your company policy is about un-authorised computers on your company network.
