Thanks for your input. I did run the ndsrepair on the 2 physical and 2 virtual (DNS/DHCP) servers and there were zero errors, but something must have clicked into place. As a side note, I had an eDir issue about 8 months back and a Novell guy in Rottedam, Netherlands, sorted it out. He also moved my timesync to my secondary DNS server, a VM, and I have not had any time sync issues since.
