Target Principal Name is incorrect

I have a windows 2K server and three windows 2k3 servers on my network. My 2k server is suddenly not synchronizing and whenever I try to do anything AD related I get the following message:

The target principal name is incorrect.

Even when I try to do:

netdom query fsmo

Any suggestions?

When I try to replicate from my other DC I get the following:

The following error occurred during teh attempt to synchronize naming
context "domain name" from domain controller "controller name" to domain
controller (controller w/the problem)
the replication operation encountered a database error
the operation will not continue
