SBS 2003 - when someone VPN, server gets additional IP and client application get confuses multiple IPs

I have recently enabled Incoming VPN connections on SBS 2003. The problem is when the user dials in. The server gets an additional IP address fpr the VPN tunneling which is fine. But it also creates a another DNS record under the server name with the additional IP.

So for example: servername.domain.local

servername -
servername -

On the client workstations. The application querys the servername's DNS and gets the second IP address. But the server core applications are listening on the first IP address. This causes havok within the network.

How can we disable in a way that the VPN or DNS server does not create this additional record so it will only have one [A] record.

At the moment I'm deleting the host record manually and modifying the workstations hosts record.. but I can't do this everyday.
