Ping Replies with the root domain instead of the child domain

Hi all

We have windows server 2003 DNS and tree DNS zones in it. Since we have three domains, we created three zones, one for the root domain, and one for each child domain.
The problem that I am having is that I am getting replies from computers in the child domain and showing that they are in the root domain like this:

ComputerName.ChildDomain.RootDomain.com when I ping this computer I get this reply:
ComputerName.RootDomain.com

I went to the DNS and saw that the computer is in the correct zone, then went to AD and saw that the computer is in the correct child domain.

Is this a normal behavior or we have a problem?

Thanks
