Best Practice To Have ALL Microsoft AD Controllers With DDNS Perform Scavening Or Just One Primary

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?

You can set ageing and scavenging on ALL. Make sure that clients are configured to register their IP in DNS (on the TCP/IP->Advanced->DNS tab, and/or that DHCP is set to register DNS on behalf of clients.
