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?

C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator>nslookup www.something.com

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.

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