File Synchronization

i have a company with 3 offices 1 in boston one in pa and one in atlanta.
the one in pa is the main pdc or first server in the windows 2000 ad network.
the other 2 servers in atlanta and boston are also domain controllers but are used as file servers for that branch
basically my docs folder redirection for the users in those branches.
i need to synchornize the files from boston and atlanta back to the server in pa to back up everynight.
what is the best way to do this.
all the files are allready there and the redirect allready working.

would i use DFS ? and if yes can that be schedualed to run at certian times at night so it doesnt slow things down ?
also since the docs are allready on each server if using dfs would i make that the main point and then link it back to the server in pa ?
