Ping -a resolves to "domaindnszones"

1. Server 2003 Primary Domain Controller, DNS Server
2.. Server 2008 Backup Domain controller, DNS server

Sometimes, not every time, when "ping -a 'server 2003 ip address'" from server 2008 it resolves to "domaindnszones.domain.local" instead of "server2003.domain.local"

I'm having some log on issues with my workstations and I'd like to resolve this first.

The only thing in DNS that looks odd is a duplicate A record for Server 2008 that is running Routing and Remote Access.

You should not have a DC or DNS server running RAS this can cause problems with DNS and AD.

Run dcdiag

Okay, but RAS should work correct?

I've got some pretty bad results in dcdiag.  I've attached dcdiag /a from both servers.

I found a PTR record in the reverse lookup zone that has server2003 also named as "domaindnszones".  I don't know how this got in there, but I removed it.

I am still troubleshooting my DNS issues...should I close this question and open a new one?

jumbo frames was enabled on both NIC cards.

I disabled jumbo frames and dcdiag results now look normal and I am able to replicate.
