I added a new DNS server and cannot get machines to take the new address

I tried restarting, renewing ip addresses, flushingdns, and other ideas.  I added the dns server to the correct dhcp scope.

This might sound like a stupid question, but have you checked the network configuration settings on the clients to make sure they're set to grab DNS server addresses from DHCP?  It's possible that they're leasing their IP address but have a particular DNS server specified in the TCP/IP properties.
