I take it that all the obvious culprits have been checked:

DNS; Can you ping the synology device by name ?
      Can you ping from the Synology device

Time: is the time correct ?

This all sounds like a dns problem or a kerberos problem caused by dns.

When you try to connect using the name, kerberos will be used, but it 
falls back to NTLM if the ipaddress is used. You need dns for kerberos 
to work.
