I guess it depends upon how frequent the broadcasts are likely to be compared to access to the DC and other machines on network A. It seems sensible to minimize the amount of traffic through the router. So if the broadcasts are frequent put it on network B, if not put it on A.

Dual NIC is always a possibility but it seems overkill to me.

and need broadcast in network B

I'd like to know that you mean by the above. Broadcast what exactly? What is it you need this computer to do in the workgroup?

Now, about these two networks. Are they physically located in the same building? Do they get access to the internet through the same gateway or are they completely separate networks? What subnet's are you using for them?

It matters not how straight the gate,
How charged with punishments the scroll,
I am the master of my fate;
I am the captain of my soul.
