What is your recording setup? This sounds like the audio and
video capture use different clocks.
I think there are only two mostly working solutions:
1) Get a capture solution that uses the same clock/quartz for
both audio and video.
2) Use -af scaletempo to slightly adjust audio speed up or down
to match the video. Not that for quality reasons I'd normally
suggest to just tweak the fps value, however if you want to
go to DVD you probably have no choice there and then adjusting
audio should work better than dropping or duplicating frames.
