Configuring DNS Server on internal stand alone network with virtual clients

I am looking for help with configuring the DNS server for a network I have created running a number of virtual machines (using VMware). For the DNS server I am running Red Hat and have configured the appropriate files to set up the server, I assume(I have configured the zone files and named.conf, and I checked resolv.conf and they all look ok). When I ping a machine on the network from the computer running the server I have no problem. But if a client tries to ping the DNS server computer I get an "unknown host" message. Can anyone direct me to where the root of the problem might be? Full answers aren't necessary ... any guidance is greatly appreciated.
