Sounds like a DNS problem.

If you ping the NETBIOS (servername) name and FQDN (servername.domain.local) does it return the servers internal IP?

They should both have the same address.

Is your internal domain tonywilliscpa.com or something like tonywilliscpa.local?

If your internal domain resolves on the internet then you need to remove any external DNS servers from your configuration.

You can test it by adding the following the the host file on a test workstation:
192.168.100.250 willisserver.tonywilliscpa.com

You should be able to resolve it by removing the external DNS servers from your DHCP server "Scope Options" and/or "Server Options".
If any computers are configured with a static IP you will need to remove the external DNS servers from them.
After you have them removed you will either need to restart the computers or run the following from a command prompt:
ipconfig /release
ipconfig /renew
you might need to run:
ipconfig /flushdns
ipconfig /registerdns

The following is the way I configure my Windows networks:
Turn off DHCP on the router.
Configure DHCP on server.
Add ISP's (Comcast) DNS servers as forwarders in the local DNS server(s).
