They probably use a WINS server at your work. It's basically the same thing as DNS except for netbios.

I have noticed in the past that going from Vista to XP definitely take a while before it shows up. If I was trying to SMB to another Vista pc it is a lot faster. I'd guess that the hotfix Runningman posted might take care of the issue.
