My DNS server service has crapped out on my twice in the last week. DNS is my weakest point, just cant seem to grasp no matter how many time i go over it.
The event logs show several events 6702, 4004, 4015.
 
Things I have noticed that appear odd (to me that is)
      under the _msdc.SMI.local there are two alias  that seem odd
               223196cc-144c-4c7a-86ab-e5fe5e88ae13._msdcs.SMI.local                points to            srvr-slm100.smi.local.
               d9c84548-d5e3-43cd-9148-6d9bab98367a._msdcs.SMI.local               points to            srvr-inet.smi.local.

and
                SMI.local
                        the two server listed  each have two host record, one with the server name  and another with (smae as parent folder)

the network has been fine up till one week ago, any ideas

Thos entries are fine.

What's going on?

Before doing anything else, be sure that NO ISP DNS address is on any NIC inside your LAN.  Put that address on the Forwarder tab of your DNS server.  AND make sure you point your servers only to your own DNS server too.

Let us know.
