Event 4515 DNS Warning

I am running 2 Windows 2003 Domain Controllers and am receiving the following error Event ID 4515 for each of my subnets.

****************
The zone 0.20.20.in-addr.arpa was previously loaded from the directory partition MicrosoftDNS but another copy of the zone has been found in directory partition DomainDnsZones.home.domain.com. The DNS Server will ignore this new copy of the zone. Please resolve this conflict as soon as possible.
 
If an administrator has moved this zone from one directory partition to another this may be a harmless transient condition. In this case, no action is necessary. The deletion of the original copy of the zone should soon replicate to this server.
 
If there are two copies of this zone in two different directory partitions but this is not a transient caused by a zone move operation then one of these copies should be deleted as soon as possible to resolve this conflict.
 
To change the replication scope of an application directory partition containing DNS zones and for more details on storing DNS zones in the application directory partitions, please see Help and Support.

*****************

I have followed these steps, but am not sure what should be here and what should not:

1.  Run ADSIEDIT
Navigate:
  Domain
      DC=home, DC=domain DC=com
          CN=System
              CN=MicrosoftDNS
--at this level I see:
                  DC=x.x.xx.in-addr.arpa
                  DC=x.xxx.xxx.in-addr.arpa
                  DC=xxx.x.xxx.in-addr.arpa                  
                  DC=domain.com
                  DC=domain.com CNF:172e041....and so on.

I am thinking the last container (CNF...) should not be there and should be deleted.  Am I correct on this? Should I delete it?  I am not very familar with DNS.

Are you confident this extra folder is causing these errors?

Lazarus...I tried your link and had no luck.  I even restarted the DNS service multiple times as it suggested.
