\\Server\SYSVOL share exists, but \\domain.local\sysvol is gone - GPO and Other Issues

I discovered that I'm getting this after some problems last week with my SBS 2003 Server (Exchange SP2 corrupted the machine, had to reinstall Exchange and then reapply SP2).

Server is SBS 2003 with SP2 on it.

The dreaded 1058 error:
--------------------------------------------------
Event Type:      Error
Event Source:      Userenv
Event Category:      None
Event ID:      1058
Date:            10/30/2008
Time:            12:10:27 PM
User:            NT AUTHORITY\SYSTEM
Computer:      SERVER
Description:
Windows cannot access the file gpt.ini for GPO CN={31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9},CN=Policies,CN=System,DC=WML,DC=local. The file must be present at the location <\\domain.local\sysvol\domain.local\Policies\{31B2F340-016D-11D2-945F-00C04FB984F9}\gpt.ini>. (Configuration information could not be read from the domain controller, either because the machine is unavailable, or access has been denied. ). Group Policy processing aborted.
---------------------

When I attempt to go to Start, run, "\\domain.local", I get:
\\domain.local is not accessible. ... Network path was not found.

I have restated NTFRS DFS to no avail.  

DNS seems good, including good and correct ping of "domain.local"

How can I recreate the \\domain.local share so I can republish the SYSVOL share?

No joy, paper tiger - the issue isn't that my policies are missing - the listed gpt.ini file *does* exist at \\server\sysvol.

The issue is that the domain-named share access point "\\domain.local" does not exist, so the sysvol share is not available using that UNC path (\\domain.local\sysvol).

Clients started having some other issues, so I had to reboot the server and - magic - the FRS share corrected itself.

\\domain.local is now available.
