A duplicate name has been detected on the TCP network.

Recently I have a noticed alot of errors appearing on serveral of my servers.  It is Event 4319:

A duplicate name has been detected on the TCP network.  The IP address of the machine that sent the message is in the data. Use nbtstat -n in a command window to see which name is in the Conflict state.

0000: 00 00 04 00 01 00 54 00   ......T.
0008: 00 00 00 00 df 10 00 c0   ....ß..À
0010: 01 01 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
0018: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
0020: 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00   ........
0028: 74 01 a8 c0               tü¨À    

I assume that the last 4 bytes are the IP address: 74 01 a8 c0 = which is the IP of one of my name servers (Microsoft DNS).  

All of the servers blame the same name server: but when I run nbtstat -n there is no name conflict, and I have a hard time believing that it is conflicting with each of the servers.

Does anyone have an idea here?
