Default DNS problem/Not seeing server

I have a XP box, on a network with Server 2003. I try to open AD Users and Computers and get an error:

"naming information cannot be located the specified domain either does not exist or could not be contacted"

This seems to be a DNS error from what I have found. I run nslookup and receive:

"can't find server name for 192.168.200.1: Timed Out"

I can access the server for any files or anything and when I restart my computer I can access AD for a few minutes. I reset the computer account and rejoined the domain and this didn't help.

I am stumped because all the DNS settings seem to be right. I have the server set as my primary DNS and our ISP as the secondary DNS. On the DNS server I have the server pointed to itself. I am confused.

Any ideas as to what I should do next?

DNS record problem. Flushed the dns and restarted computers. All is good.
