Windows 2000 DNS updates from the DHCP Server.

Ensure that Allow Dynamic Updates is set to Secure Updates only. And that your DHCP is allowed to update DNS.

How do .local and .org fit together?

DHCP will try and register entries using the Primary DNS Suffix. If that's set to .org and you only have a .local zone then there's nowhere for it to register the entries.

Try using the following commands at the command prompt:

net stop netlogon
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns
net start netlogon
