We have 3 DC's with DNS on each (server 1, 2 &3), the DNS is in Active
Directory integrated mode between the 3.

If I add an A host or CNAME to server 2 and 3's DNS no one can ping it.
However if we add it to server 1 the everyone can connect/ping to it.  I
thought if users can't resolve a name via DNS it will go to the other DNS
servers to find it?

Server 1 was the first ever DC and DNS we ever have, later we added server 2
and 3.

We have a forwarder to an Internet DNS server for internet name resolution.

Hope you can help.
