NO!!! It does not!!!
Even in a real Windows environemenmt it does not. One is the chief holding
all. The other Servers just get the infos.
Tested it a thousand times and it always replicate only in one direction
master to slave.

Trouble is Marc, the OP doesn't actually state what changes he is making, if
it is something like creating a GPO then what you are saying is correct, but
you should be able to create a user on any DC and it should then replicate
to any other DC's or am I missing something here.
