It depends on what sort of activity you are doing with the DCs. There
will only be outbound activity if one of the DCs has accepted a
connection which will change the databases. In the normal day to day
running, it is 99% usual that not much changes at all as far as the DCs
are concerned.

The best way to convince yourself is to change something innocuous such
as a user's uidNumber. Wait a bit and then change it back. Look at the
(preferable interactive) log on the dc you are sitting at, have a
terminal open to do the samba-tool drs at the same time.
