2 domain name for same network

PopMiller 1 Reputation point

Hello all,
I have a small network consisting of 2 servers windows Server 2019 and a windows 10 unit I use as a storage server. We have 10 workstations and 4 multi-function printers connected to the network. Our network domain name is sandmansoffices.local ( not real name), on some of our computers it shows as sandmansoffiecs.local and on others it shows as sandmansoffice0.local. we have a couple of desktop units that are wirelessly hooked to the network. I am in the process of connecting one of the multifunction printers to a storage server folder, this is when I found this situation. The printer showed 2 networks and I checked the other computers and found that some have the sandmansoffices.local network name and others have sandmansoffice0.local name. I have never seen this before.
Can some one please tell me what is going on, or am I just crazy?

Thank you in advance for your assistance

    Let's confirm if there are 2 domains in the same forest.
    PowerShell command: get-adforest


    In the ADUC, check the properties of the computers, if there are anything different:
