I created a Windows 2003 domain 172.19.36.x  I have two domain contollers which are also dns and dhcp.  I currently have 3 stand alone servers 172.19.34.x, 2 stand alone servers 172.19.35.x which have I have had no problem joining to the domain.  Today I tried to join two more stand alone servers 172.19.35.x but I keep getting an error that the domain controller can not be contacted.  

I can ping the dc with ip address and FQDN but not by name alone.  I have verified all my ip settings, no firewall or antivirus software is active.  Any idea what the problem can be?
