I get the folowing error: Critical Issues - DNS A resource record reports to incorrect IP address.
The host (A) resource record points to the incorrect IP address 192.168.50.5192.168.50.19. The record should point to 192.168.50.5.
There are no records in DNS that I can find that are wrong.  Any feedback is much appreciated!

This appears to be a problem with the BPA when VPN functionality is enabled on the SBS server.  The bogus address shown in the error is a concatenation of the server's IP address and the VPN IP address.  Here are a couple of references to the error as seen by others, but there does not appear to be a fix at this time:

If you are not experiencing any sort of connectivity issues, the BPA error can most likely be ignored.  Hopefully an update of the BPA will eventually resolve the issue.

Thanks Dr Dave!  I thought it was a spurious issue.
