DNS Issues - Looks like the _msdcs got moved!? HELP!

Specs: Server 2003 R2, Xeon 2.33Ghz / 4GB
Working on a Windows 2003 Domain, DHCP, and File Server -

After struggling for a while to keep workstations connected and correctly loading websites etc I think I've narrowed it down to the DNS.

I cannot complete a correct nslookup command.

Looking at the DNS under the Admin tools I see this -

I think the issues is that there is two zones under the dns and the the _msdcs needs to be under the DMTemps.internal zone.

Can anyone confirm this?

Is there anyway to move it back (Not sure how it got moved in the 1st place!) or do I need to uninstall and reinstall the DNS server?

Thanks in advance,
