Every win2000 workstation on my network is getting this warning upon logon:

The browser has received a server announcement indicating that the computer ******* is a master browser, but this computer is not a master browser.

and when loging in from a reboot, as oposed to a logoff, roaming profiles are not found, as the error no domain controller is found appears. However, the login script still runs, and network drives are mapped.

I did what you suggested about forwarding to Unix name server from the DC DNS.  I stil get tons of SVR Netlogon errors - no DNS records are registering, always with the error: DNS Server unable to interpret format.

-This is a windows 2000 DNS server ?
-Is the 2000 DNS server bound to the inside IP ? (Dns server admin properties)
-Did you create a forward lookup zone for the 2000 domain ?
-Is forward lookup zone active directory integrate & accepting dynamic updates ?(Dns server forward lookup zone's properties)
-Do not have it perform any zone transfers with your other dns server. (independant except for the forwarders to query).
-Do authenticated users have read access to the dns server ? (Dns server admin properties)
-How do your client stations receive IP's ? DHCP ? Is it also a 2000 server ?
-Are you running wins ?

You hit the nail on the head with these references. It was all related to Bind and AD integraion. Though still trying to work it all out, our system will be very similar to Oxford's. Thanks!
