DNS seems to hang

Every morning when I try to remote to one of my servers by name it takes a long time (20 seconds) to resolve.  If I flush DNS it works perfect after that, any ideas why it is slow everyday and works good after a flush?  I am using Microsoft 2003 servers and have two.

Check your primary and Secondary DNS server config.
Make sure that both DNS servers are available.
Microsoft DNS clients have a builtin algorhythm to check if DNS servers are available, whereafter it fails over to the secondary DNS server.

Can you ping it by name and IP with little latency?

Are your DNS settings - servers pointed correctly? right IPs?

when you do nslookup "hostname" does that look correct?
