First, what are your DNS settings on both systems?  Please post them (in short, the DC must point to itself, the 2000 server must be using only the DC(s).

Second, have you tried specifying the fully qualified domain name - 2000serverName.internalDNSdomainName.local?

Like what leew said, your primary DNS on the Windows 2000 machine must be the same as the IP address of the 2003 domain controller.

So if your 2003 domain server is 192.168.1.2, then the primary DNS of the Windows 2000 box must also be 192.168.1.2.
