Also, at the machine level make sure that the network settings are updating their DNS entries for your LAN connection.
You can find this in Advanced Properties for the TCP/IP Settings on the NIC card.

In the DHCP, under the DNS tab.  I checked Always dynamically update DNS A and PTR records.  I checked Discard A and PTR records when lease is deleted.  I also checked Dynamically update DNS A and PTR records for DHCP Clients that dod not request updates

Try deleting the forward zone entry for that system and leaving the reverse zone alone. Increment your SOA to force the zone change.
Then go to the machine and release and renew the IP and see if the zone updates with the correct forward information.
It may just be a stale record.

Nothing happens if you reload the zone. It reloads the zone. It doesn't affect any services running.
If you have multiple entries for a single computer in your reverse zone it can hose reverse DNS lookups to that machine. It will think that machine has two different IP's when in fact one of the two IP's may point to a different machine all together.
It's not normal to have multip reverse zone entries unless you have a system that has more than one IP address assigned to it.

Using DHCP.  This is not just a computer, it is multiple computers.

verify you lease time and clean your database your DHCP did not give the sam IP at the same machine and your machine register ti the DNS with is new IP so in the DNS you have the same machine with 2 ip one in use and the other are not use

go ont your DNS server Advenced tab and enable automatic scavenging of state record ( the cleanning  man) it will clean old entry in your DNS

Yes. You can reload in production. And I would recheck your DHCP server settings to make sure you don't have something in there causing an issue with DNS.

Still no luck.  DHCP seems fine I posted the setting above.  The lease time on the DHCP is 7 days.

If your machine was close for more than 7 days your DHCP give is ip to a other machine and you did not clean your DNS so verify if your  scavenging is activat on your DNS and verify that the scavage is notmore than 7 days.

What server version are you running?
Make sure that your server's service packs are up to date.
i.e. if you are running Windows Server 2003 make sure that you are running service pack 2. If not, update it.
Have a look at this:
