SBS2008 Returning RAS IP Address instead of actual?

I have a new SBS2008 server, successfully migrated my users.  I *believe* everything is working fine right now.

The only possible problem I'm seeing is where whenever I ping my server, I'm getting the RAS address and not the actual IP address of the server on the network.

Server IP:  192.168.40.10
RAS IP:  192.168.40.125

Microsoft Windows [Version 6.1.7601]
Copyright (c) 2009 Microsoft Corporation.  All rights reserved.

C:\Users\chrisb.TDC>nslookup serenity
Server:  serenity.tdc.local
Address:  192.168.40.10

Name:    serenity.TDC.local
Addresses:  192.168.40.125
          192.168.40.10

In my DNS Forward Lookup Zones, I have a zone "TDC.local" - and there are 2 entries for serenity - both the "10" and "125" address.

Do I need to be concerned about this?

Two things to check:
-Under network connections on the menu bar select advanced, then advanced settings, and adapters and bindings. Make sure the LAN connection is at the top of the list, and the RRAS connection at the bottom.
-In the DNS management console right click on the server name and choose properties, under the interfaces tab make sure only the server's IP is checked (IPv4 & IPv6). i.e. make sure the VPN/PPP adapter is not checked
I would then remove the VPN/PPP IP from the DNS hosts list, and run ipconfig /flushdns on server and client
