2 DNS entries in a clean install S2012 r2

I was following some tutorials. Got to adding zones and their one has 1 DNS entry. My one has these 2. Its only supposed to have 1??

Its for school.

middleearth is the server and lotr.com is obviously the domain.

What have I done??? So far i have gathered it may be because I used a capital letter in my name...


Any help on getting this right would be amazing7003-capture.png

The first is the NETBIOS name and the second is the FQDN for the DNS server. You can choose to just use one, or delete the one you don't want. So far I have not seen a reason why this happens.
