The DC's you are deploying have DNS? I would assume yes, if this is true, can you open the DNS console on one of the new DC's and see if that CNAME record exists? Also, have you checked your firewall settings on these machines to ensure they are correct?

Also, instead of pointing the DC to itself for DNS, if you point it to one of the old DC's do and ipconfig /flushdns and try pinging the cname again does it work?

have you made sure that WPAD is allowed on via the blocklist and that setting is on all the DC's
