SPNEGO Event 40960

I'm getting Event 40960 warnings in my event log for a Server 2003 R2. The server is a domain controller with all of the FSMO roles assigned to it. We recently had to force remove a secondary DC from the AD due to hardware failure. We will not be replacing the removed server. I want to be sure that these errors are not some issue left over from the old server. There are 4 errors on every boot. 2 are from cifs and 2 from ldap.

Description:
The Security System detected an authentication error for the server cifs/domain-controller.  The failure code from authentication protocol Kerberos was "There are currently no logon servers available to service the logon request.
 (0xc000005e)".

When you did the force removal, was it removed from AD manually?

It was removed from AD about a week ago using the steps outlined in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/216498 . It was also the CA server so I followed the instructions in http://support.microsoft.com/kb/555151 . Just to be clear, this is still a DC and the only DC in the network. It held all of the roles and the other server which was removed held none.

If all DC's for the domain are down, you will see this when the first one comes up.
