On the DC that is not getting the replication, have you forced

Does that help?

samba-tool drs replicate

Test with and without the --local option, which does the replication in
the local python process and so will show errors more easily (you can turn up the log level of the command line tool with -d)

Are other changes (password updates, other modifications) reflected
compared with proxyAdddress?

(And don't worry, it is not case sensitive and is self-correcting of
case, if Samba accepts the modify it should replicate, as long as you
don't access the files under sam.ldb.d/ directly).
