Duplicate DNS entries in domain.com._msdcs

I'm sorting out some replication issues here, and one of the things I've come across is that three of our many DCs have duplicate DNS entries in DOMAIN.com._msdcs.  These are the GUID alias records.

I suspect that each DC should only have one entry in that folder.  How do I know which one to delete?  Or will the correct entry rebuild itself if I delete both?  Thoughts?

Ah never mind - I figured it out.  Run repadmin /showreps which will show you the GUIDs of all the partners, including your own.  That will tell you which entry to delete.
