Domain Controller Security Failure Audit -Event ID 566

We have a windows 2003 domain with two domain controllers and we continue to get hundreds of event ID 566 failure audits in the security event log on our primary domain controller.

It seems like our exchange server (2003) is trying to access directory service objects in the Deleted Objects container, but I am not sure what the exchange server is trying to access or why.

I have run dcdiag against our primary domain controller and all the test pass without any errors.

Any Ideas??  We recently implemented a log management solution and it is constantly capturing all these logs.
