Error 7062 in Event Log

I have a Windows 2003 Server that is the PDC and DNS Server for a small
network. Getting the following error in the DNS Event Viewer:
Event Type: Warning
Event Source: DNS
Event Category: None
Event ID: 7062
Date: 10/7/2004
Time: 6:11:37 PM
User: N/A
Computer: CURLY
Description:
The DNS server encountered a packet addressed to itself on IP address
192.168.1.10. The packet is for the DNS name
"_ldap._tcp.Default-First-Site._sites.dc._msdcs.RonCurryCPA.local.". The
packet will be discarded. This condition usually indicates a configuration
error.

Check the following areas for possible self-send configuration errors:
1) Forwarders list. (DNS servers should not forward to themselves).
2) Master lists of secondary zones.
3) Notify lists of primary zones.
4) Delegations of subzones. Must not contain NS record for this DNS
server unless subzone is also on this server.
5) Root hints.

Sometimes the error is this:
The DNS server encountered a packet addressed to itself on IP address
192.168.1.10. The packet is for the DNS name "gc._msdcs.RonCurryCPA.local.".
The packet will be discarded. This condition usually indicates a
configuration error.

This is the only server on the network, in the TCP/IP properties, it's
pointed at itself for DNS. Forwarding is set up to go to the ISP DNS. One
Forwarding zone is setup. I've looked all through the Microsoft KB
solutions, and haven't found anything. Any other suggestions?

Thanks.

In the Root Hints did you add your own DNS server by any chance?
Look in to Root hints, and check if you find the FQDN or private / public IP
of your DNS server.
If you find remove it.

"gc._msdcs.RonCurryCPA.local.".
