can't resolve domain address

Using hyperv in win2k8r2, all pc's are joined to the domain 'abc.com'

mailserver1  10.0.0.4  
adserver1      10.0.0.3    (DC, AD, DNS server)

When I'm on mailserver1 and I try to ping my domain abc.com it shows it's trying to reach 192.168.1.3 (old ip scheme I no longer use).  When all my other servers ping abc.com it resolves correctly to 10.0.0.3.  On mailserver1 within the tcp/ip configuration I've set the 'preferred DNS' to 10.0.0.3.  Still it tries to ping  192.168.1.3.

What I've tried so far:

ipconfig /flushdns, /release /renew
nbtstat -R
restarted DNS Client
tried adding another 'Network Adapter'  (server is within HyperV)
restarted / shutdown pc
Within DNS: created Host A record for 10.0.0.3 abc.com, Scavenged Stale resource
            records, Cleared Cache

any other ideas?

Does it work if you put abc.com\IP address into the host file of mailserver1?
If so I'd let that go for a while and let DNS update on its own. Then try taking it out later and see if it's working.
