Manage time interval domain controllers update browse lists.

Every MasterPeriodicity time interval the BDCs contact the PDC to exchange their browse lists. In a slow WAN environment, one probably should significantly increase the interval to minimize traffic. Default is every 12minutes.

Hive: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE
Key: SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\Browser\Parameters
Type: REG_DWORD
Name: MasterPeriodicity
Value: 720 default, range=300 to 4294967 secs
