Snow Leopard\Lion picking up the wrong hostname

All of my mac computers are picking up the wrong hostname. I give it a name but when I open terminal or look netstat the local host is wrong. I have been searching online and found that this could be a problem with our reverse dns lookup. Has anyone had this problem and been able to fix it. I am thinking it is my root cause for my macs having a slower connection to the server.

thanks

There were multiple Reverse (PTR) records for theIP addresses, so the macs was resolving the wrong one.
