Is your server a DNS server as well?  If so, check the event log to see if there are any errors.  The problem could also be if you have a lot of traffic and you're using hubs instead of switches.  Without more info about your layout, it's really difficult to diagnose.

Yes this is the DNS Server.  We are using a 16 Port 3 COM Switch.

The network neighborhood is still relying on NetBIOS, and for that to work reliably, you need a WINS server.
So install a WINS server on your DC, and let all domain members point to it in the advanced TCP/IP settings (and make sure NetBIOS is enabled on all clients).
