CauseWhen replica package was first created there was a name in the reverse lookup of DNS which was associated with IP address being used for the replica. 
Even though DNS has been cleansed of this name and address using the address still fails in the replica attachment.
ResolutionThe resolution is to use a different IP address and/or name for the new replica and regenerate the package.
