JSI Tip 1524. WINS lookup in DNS zone may not resolve some name queries.

In addition to the subject symptoms, you may receive:

Name does not exist.

If you then try Nslookup, the following is displayed:

Cannot find queriedname: Non-existent domain.

A Ping returns:

Bad IP address queriedname.

A WINS query may time out 1 second before the the configured timeout value. To workaround this problem, increase the WINS lookup timeout value by 1, using the WINS lookup tab in zone properties.
