de-moting windows 2003 domain controller

I just promoted to windows 2003 domain controllers and de-moted the 2 old one's. I noticed that under sites and services, those servers are still listed there. There are servers under it for replication but should I delete it or should it go away on its own?

Give it a while and see if iy goes - if it doesn't then run a AD Clenaup. See http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa996466.aspx

Pay particular attention to the metadata cleanup portion.. This is where you will actually be removing the old DC data from Active Directory.  Once that is complete, I would manually kick off the KCC through Active Directory by following the following guide.

This should hopefully remove those stale DC from the Sites and Services Replication topology.
