You can avoid the registry of the second IP in DNS by disabling this on the NIC:

--> Under Network Connections Properties:
NIC TCP/IP Properties -> Advanced -> DNS - > Uncheck "Register this connections Address in DNS"

After changing this you can remove the unwanted IP-address for this server in the DNS server where it is registered.
Normally it shouldn't come back.

There's also a way to do this through Powershell, found the link I was searching for.

As soravtek has stated you can disable the DNS directly on the NIC. However, if you added a second IP to the default NIC then both IP addresses will be listening for DNS.

I do not know of any way to get around this. So your work-a-round would be to install a second separate NIC and not add an additional IP to the primary NIC.

If this server is a DNS server then you can change the Listening IP's on the interface tab for the DNS server properties.

We moved this IP to the second separate NIC this morning.  This seems to have worked so far, I will follow up tomorrow.
