Your DNS server has an incorrect entry, or the PC has a bad entry in the DNS cache.

Run "ipconfig /flushdns" on the machine doing the pinging and run "ipconfig /registerdns" on the other machine(s)

If you can ping by FQDN, then DNS is working.

If you cannot ping by NetBIOS (short name) resolution, it means that WINS is not working.
