For this to work 

Below shows a A on the old hostname, correct ? 
With the "netbios alias" used in samba. 

Setup like this : 
The new server.. 
hostname => DNS A 
IP	   => DNS PTR

And try again. 
Remove the A/PTR of the old hostname also. 
Only a CNAME is sufficient..

Note, the new server MUST have A and PTR setup. 

optional, set dns proxy = yes in smb.conf
