Duplicate name in Active Directory

I just setup a network of 20 computers with 2003 Active Directory.  Why all of a sudden computers are starting to say there are duplicate names for that computer.  Even my one domain controller now says it.

And no, I haven't been trying to join computers with the same name to the domain.  I do have two DC's which are in two geographical locations.

I'll look into it...  We do have an old WINS server for an old domain that I'm trying to get away from.
