Resolving incorrect IP address to fully qualified domain name

When I ping mail.quantumsilicones.com from any server in my name it resolves to which is incorrect. The correct IP is

However, when I do alookup on DNS Stuff or another domain the ip address is resolved correctly.

I have no static records in DNS and did a ROUTE PRINT to see if there was a static entry, but nothing. I rebooted one of the DC's and that did not resolve the issue either.

I checked the HOSTS and LMHOSTS filess and they do not contain statis entries either..

Anyone know where else I can look to figure out how is it is resolving the wrong IP address?

I know that. The issue is internal to the company

Your local DNS needs to update the record.

When you say "do alookup on DNS Stuff ", what do you check exactly? A nslookup from inside the local domain? I recommend to use nslookup against your internal DNS server and check it against an external one. If they differ, you have to check DNS cache, too.

Route print does not reveal DNS info, BTW.
