That depends ...
Was this domain upgraded from NT4?
This could be a result of incorrect DNS setting as well; in short: make sure you're *only* using your DC(s) as DNS server in the TCP/IP settings on *all* domain members. The *only* place in your network configuration where your IPS's DNS servers may be configured is the Forwarders section in the DNS properties.
For further troubleshooting, you can use dcdiag.exe and netdiag.exe (both support a /fix parameter to fix small problems on the fly) to check your system for errors in the domain setup.

Note that gpresult.exe can and will only differentiate between NT4 and AD; a W2k3 AD domain will still be identified as Windows 2000.

Come to think of it, this server may have originally been NT4

Depending on how your did your upgrade, you should check if the "NT4Emulator" value has been deleted/set to 0 on all your DCs; it might have been manually added to the DC during the upgrade and never have been removed.
