This should be straight-forward.

1)  Make sure the internal NIC (one for AD) is at the top of the binding order.
2)  Make sure the VS NIC is set so that it does NOT register in DNS (uncheck the box).
3)  Remove ALL DNS entries for the VS NIC from all containers in every zone.

This should correct the problem.

You may be missing the host records for (same as parent) directly on the root of the domain zone.

Interestingly, those IP addresses are fully routable.  You should consider using private IP addresses inside your lan.  You run the risk of being hacked with fully routable IP addressing.

those are not the exact ip addresses that i use in my lan just used as an example.

the Same as parent A Record is pointing to the DC 1.1.1.4 correctly still no pinging netbios name.

On the machine you are pinging from go into the Properties of the Network Card.
Double-click TCP/IP
Click on the Advanced button
On the DNS tab, you should have the following checked off:

Append primary and connection specific DNS suffixes.
Append parent suffixes of the primary DNS suffix.
Register this connection's addresses in DNS.

Is this correct?

When you ping a netbios name, it will then append suffixes for the ping (as it should).
