Question nltest /dclist lists dead DC??

when i do nltest /dclist:<domainname> i see a DC that has been disconnected and physically not there any more.
i don't see it in AD OU=Domain Controllers but it's till in OU=Computers. but this is not the only ex-DC that are still in AD but yet, this exDC is the only one who still gets listed in nltest /dclist.
i'm not sure if this is casuing any of the errors that we are experiencing.(most of them are caused by DNS issues)
where can i look to fix this??

master is on win2k3,
exchange2k3 on win2k
the rest of them are win2k server sp4

ah i got it.
in AD, someone tried to delete this DC but unable to do so. so they just moved it to OU=domain computer but it was still recognized as a DC. i moved it to domain controller in ADSI edit and deleted it with no problem.
problem solved. =)
