Recheck your DNS settings on the XP machine.

Is the problem limited to the one computer? If not, run a DNS check on the server itself. Check the event logs for DNS-related errors.

If the problem is limited to the XP computer, open the Properties for the network card and double-click on TCP/IP.

If you supply the DNS server address(es) via DHCP, then make sure there are no manually assigned servers in the TCP/IP properties.

Lastly, if you are using Dynamic Updates and have enabled Secure Updates, make sure the workstation is a member of the domain and authorized to update DNS (all Authenticated Users are authorized by default).
