Server 2012 having issues with DNS

I have a customer who sent this:
Our server has had a few hiccups lately.  Slow responses, local computers unable to find the server, access issues.....
 
The server log shows this entry happening every 4 hours.  Thoughts?
 
Server: XXXXX
 ID: XXXX
 Severity: Warning
  Source: NETLOGON
  Log: System
  Date and Time: 5/28/2015 3:46:58 PM
 
Dynamic registration or deletion of one or more DNS records associated with DNS domain 'DomainDnsZones.xxxxxxxx.local.' failed.  These records are used by other computers to locate this server as a domain controller (if the specified domain is an Active Directory domain) or as an LDAP server (if the specified domain is an application partition).  
 
Possible causes of failure include:  
- TCP/IP properties of the network connections of this computer contain wrong IP address(es) of the preferred and alternate DNS servers
- Specified preferred and alternate DNS servers are not running
- DNS server(s) primary for the records to be registered is not running
- Preferred or alternate DNS servers are configured with wrong root hints
- Parent DNS zone contains incorrect delegation to the child zone authoritative for the DNS records that failed registration  
 
USER ACTION  
Fix possible misconfiguration(s) specified above and initiate registration or deletion of the DNS records by running 'nltest.exe /dsregdns' from the command prompt on the domain controller or by restarting Net Logon service on the domain controller.
 
Seems to be the only warning messages we are getting.  Please let me know."


The "User Action" was run.  No difference.   To clear the unresponsive connections is to reboot the server.

This is the only server and it is the DC running Server 2012.   Any ideas?

There might be a possibility that your services of Windows netlogon and other associated services have gone on manual mode kindly check back the services of windows. If you find services are on manual mode run the command msconfig in run and then check general option of startup and services options.  This might resolve your problem

This is a server that is about 1 year since installed and has been running well since it was installed.

When I run Ipconfig /all the DNS is the ISP DNS addresses, not the PDC which is running DNS.  They use VPN.   Could this be the issue?  If The DNS is changed to the PDC address, would that affect the VPN?

Now user is saying that "error messages are showing up in all modules, not just local server module".   Any ideas what I should look for?
