Master Browser Election - OS X

OK - I've been having some major network issues, mostly with voice traffic that goes through my data network.  So, I decided to do a good old packet capture with wireshark.  So, one thing I found is that I have a unit out there that seems to be flooding my network with "Master Browser Requests".  We're talking hundreds and hundreds of packets at a time.  

After doing a nbtstat -a to the IP I found that it is a Mac OS X unit that 's causing the issue.  How can I turn this off?  Driving me insane!
