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

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?

Did you clean up DNS IP that is not used ?

Just figured it out but giving you the pints anyway, since your suggestion is correct.
