But... I tried adding a DC3, and it started replicating with DC1, and of 
course it failed to replicate the faulty DomainDnsZones. So the join 
failed, and was reversed.

So...how to add a DC3, and make it sync to DC2 instead of DC1? I assumed 
that this is not possible without transferring fsmo rules, but your 
recommendation above tells me that it IS possible?

That would be super cool, and by far the best solution out of this mess.
