To keep the record straight.  This is absolutely how Microsoft stores AD DNS Integration post Windows 2000.  MS DCs do not replicate this portion of the directory.  The DNS servers subscribe to it so that only servers that need the information get the replication traffic.  This supposedly saved traffic on GCs.
