SBS 2003 FSMO question

When I add additional DC to an SBS 2003 environment.  How do I make sure that they are not running FSMO? Is this a default when installing DNS?

The SBS server, assuming it is installed first in the domain, will be the FSMO master - no other servers will have those functions unless YOU explicitly move them.

However, if the SBS server were not the FSMO master in any category I would expect it to reboot hourly due to your violation of SBS licensing.
