I have already gone this route.  Our DC is also a DNS server and the
entries are all there.  What's really interesting that through all of
the requests, the DC acks every single one.

You may want to look at the DNS/DHCP server.  If there is a 2003 DC and 
it is not the DNS/DHCP server then things can slow down.  I believe it 
is a reverse DNS issue.
