You can use LMHOSTS file like other have suggested, or simply set the 
WINS server on your clients to the Samba server. Do this under the 
properties on the Windows boxes for the VPN connection.

You could even get domain logons to work this way too right from the 
login prompt, assuming the client's interface to the Internet is up, 
which means any logon script with driving mappings will get run too.

I found network neighboured worked for me too. The WINS server must dish 
out a list when clients connect?
