when your clients are looking for the domain controller, they are using DNS, and if your DNS servers are external, than your clients are looking outside the network for the domain controller. We had the same problem. Try making the 2000 server the primary DNS server and test it out. You should also have DNS servers outside the network for external DNS queries.
