What exactly do you mean? Machine accounts?

If you have multiple DC in your domain, and the directory replication 
works ('samba-tool drs showrepl'), then every changes made are 
transfered to each DC (accounts, directory ACLs, etc.)

Only the SysVol share replication is currently not implemented. You have 
to find a workaround (like doing it with rsync).
