I have 3 domains, 1 parent domain & 2 child domains, every domain has its own DNS Server & since these domains are in one forest so the two child DNS zones come under the Parent Zone, the problems I have been having lately is that if there are any new changes like addition of PCs to the domain their entries are added to the local DNS Server of this domain but is not replicated or transferred to the DNS Servers of the other two domains, this event is OK if it is limited only to normal PCs but the problem happens when any new server is involved; in this case the servers from the other domains cannot resolve the name of the new server & hence cannot communicate to it.

Now in the DNS Server settings of every DNS Server for every domain, in the properties of the domain under the Name Servers Tab, I can see all the DNS Servers for the forest in the list, & on the Zone Transfer Tab I have selected the option that Zone Transfers should be sent to all the Servers mentioned in the Name Servers Tab.

I hope that the steps that I have mentioned are correct if yes then my question is why any entries are not being replicated to the other DNS servers & if the steps are wrong please guide me for the right procedure.
