You'll need to delete the SRV and A records for the DC's old IP from the
domain's forward lookup zone. This may be a little tedious, but make sure
you get them all.

Then stop and start the NETLOGON service on the DC. That will prompt
registration of DNS records on that machine for all interfaces that are set
to do that.

You could also enable scavening at a frequent setting for the forward lookup
