Redundant DNS

Hi All,
I have 4 Win2k03 servers.  I just ran DCPromo on a second server for Domain Controller redundancy (Yes, I know that the roles would still have to be moved if the primary domain controller failed).  But I have also realized that the primary domain controller is running DNS.  If that domain controller were to fail, my users would not have access because of a DNS failure.  So I have installed DNS on the second server as well.  My question is how do I get DNS to replicate with the primary domain controller so I do not have to setup a separate zone.  If the main zone is any Active Directory Integrated zone will the replication automatically occur?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
