NetBT name test. . . . . . . . . . : Passed
    [WARNING] You don't have a single interface with the <00> 'WorkStation Servi
ce', <03> 'Messenger Service', <20> 'WINS' names defined.

... to me it looks like some WINS entries are not registered for this server. Can someone point me in the right direction or assist me in finding why this warning comes up.

Have you tried running nbtstat -RR?  Note that the Rs must be capitalized.

This does a release and renew of WINS entries for the machine.

That's actually an 'expected' error on a W2k3 machine.
The Messenger service is disabled by default in W2k3, so a W2k3 DC will *never* have the 03 entry registered (unless you start the messenger service).
You can usually ignore this message; the 03 is so absolutely non-essential for AD, it's not even worth talking about.
If you want to play it real safe, you can start the messenger service, then run dcdiag again. If it doesn't report the error anymore, disable the messenger service again and ignore it from then on.
Beats me why Microsoft didn't include a simple check whether the Messenger service is actually running, and only test the 03 registration if it is, but they didn't, so we're stuck with this 'error'.
