Answering to myself, i precise i did'nt have any replication issues when 
i only had two DCs.

Now I have 3 master DC at my office, and 3 more DCs on remote sites I 
encounterd replication issues.
(see errors with samba-tool drs showrepl)

In each replication status i can see that when remote DC is pointing to 
my main DC server, everything's fine, but when pointing (automatically) 
to another DC, i see errors.
That's why i was wonderng about forcing all the DC to replicate from the 
main one.

Is there a good pratice when adding new remote DCs in terms of 
replication topology?
