We Have An Organization - ~ 1500 PCs - We Utilize Microsoft Active Directory Domain Controllers. (DDNS Integrated.)

We have 3 connected sites, each with their own AD Controller. (1 site has two AD Controllers.)

Due to our noticing 'dropped' DNS Resource Records, we're wondering is it;

Better to have only ONE AD Controller (DDNS Integrated) performing the scavenging routine and sharing that/those changes with their counterparts? Or utilizing/turning on scavenging on each/every AD controller?
