If your DHCP server is also a domain controller, then you are probably fine, if not, then you may want to see if the DHCP server is a member of the "Dns Update Proxy" group in AD.

If they are in the forward zone but not the reverse, then something else is going on...

3) If the issue is that your reverse zones are mismatched between domain controllers (meaning a host was able to register with one of the DCs, but the registration did not get replicated to the others) it could mean the zones themselves aren't replicating between domain controllers.

If so, your DHCP server may not be configured to auto-register their IP with the DNS server.

To check, right-click your DHCP scope and go to properties.

The forward DNS entries ("A" records) for windows machines on the domain are populated automatically.However, the reverse DNS entries ("PTR" Records) are not.
