Active Directory Site and Services

I have a SBS 2003 server and 4 remote sites that are domain controllers.  Everything seems to be working fine but would like to know if the following is not correct:
In active directory sites and services I have defined the 4 remote site as well as the subnet section.
Under NTDS on three of the site it shows 1 automatically genrated NTDS setting to the same site.    Under the other there is four.  Does that sound right?

How many DCs exist in the site containing 4 and in total?  In addition, how many domains?

sounds like a hub and spoke topology which is fine - being SBS, it will only be one domain :)

you can add other links, but your current topology is pretty standard, if you want mesh it you will need to it manually

It seems to me that my SBS has one NTDS connection to let say remote office 1.  Then the rest of them contact remote office 1 for domain replication?
