It refers to the  naming context.

As specified in [MS-ADTS], domain controller (DC) use the Directory
Replication Service (DRS) Remote Protocol to replicate their
configurations, schema, and domain naming context (domain NC) to other
domain controllers.

The data replicated between controllers called "data" are also called
"naming context".

Hope this help

Please note Jelmer just release alpha 14!
