I'm a little confused on how the a master browser works.

I know that in a domain... the PDC is the master browser. It keeps track of computers, users and etc. It then propogates that to all the BDCs. Normally your PDC and your BDC's are the only PCs that participate in browser elections.

In a workgroup... is there any need for a master browser? How do you find out which PC would be acting as the master browser?

I have found out how to configure the master browser and how to allow/deny certain machines in participating in a browser election. I just can't find out how to determine which PC is acting as the master.

I thought I saw it somewhere in the past, but I'm unable to locate that material ATM.

Thanks in advance!
