ping -a resolves to old machine name

When I do a ping -a I get a reply that shows the name of a machine that is not on the network any more.

 I opened DNS and deleted all old machine names/ip addresses that are no longer in use and reloaded the zone.

How can I clean this up so it ping -a resolves to all current machine names.

Server 2003, DNS, DHCP

Thanks,

cja

The -a does a reverse lookup.  Did you clean up the reverse zone (the one that contains all of the PTR records) for the subnet?
