replication scope question

I have a DNS server with three AD integrated zones and one primary zone. That
server is the only DC with DNS installed. There is a member server that has
DNS installed that hosts secondary zones for all four of the zones on the DC.
A replacement for the DC is in place. I would like to install DNS on the
other DCs in the forest root domain and replicate the AD integrated zones.
Currently the zone replication scope is set to "All Domain Controllers in the
Active Directory domain". The current DNS servers are running Windows 2003
SP2 32 bit, the new DC is running 64bit R2. Would there be any advantage to
changing the scope to the default setting "All DNS servers in the Active
Directory domain" or should I leave the replication scope alone? Would there
be any issue due to the differences in operating systems?

Thanks in advance
