Windows Clients cannot resolve client website using DNS from Mac Server

Scenario
Client is called something.com
Apple DNS has zone for something.com and apple clients inside the network can resolve mail.something.com www.something.com but WIndows clients getting DHCP settings from the Apple server and the same DNS as the Apple clients cannot ping the www.something.com domain. Any ideas?

Issue was DNS. Aliases were being used and have since been replaced.

You need to create a "www" host record with the ip of the webserver.

Or use a CNAME record if the host is a different name.
