WINS doesn't use broadcast,but you should set up a WINS server, or
activate this service on smb.conf and point your Windows station to Samba
server ( in TCP/IP Properties-> WINS server ).

I'm not sure 100% but that should be 192.168.x.x.137 -> 192.168.x.255.137
Source port and destination port are the same, 137 ( netbios-ns ).
I suggest to increase logging to see exactly if broadcast are permitted or
denied by your rules.
