[Samba] sysvol permissions

At this point I have a DC2 joined to a DC1 that has all the FMSO roles.  I have
confirmed that 'samba-tool drs showrepl' on both DCs produces the expected
results without error.

I am now looking at sysvol replication. On FreeBSD the sysvol is located at
/var/db/samba4/sysvol.  Here is the problem.  On DC1 I see this:

[root at smb4-1 ~ (master)]# ll /var/db/samba4/sysvol
total 1
d---rwx---+ 4 root  3000000  4 Jun  8 12:27 brockley.harte-lyne.ca

On DC2 I see this:

[root at smb4-2 ~ (master)]# ll /var/db/samba4/sysvol
total 1
drwxr-xr-x  3 root  wheel  3 Jun 25 14:26 brockley.harte-lyne.ca

I have not yet attempted a replication, which will use rsync when it is
attempted.  Are the settings on DC2 expected or should they match those on DC1?
