Are you trying to say that you created a child domain but it is not showing up in DNS Console on the parent domain? I hope the DC promo for child domain went successful. Looking at your question, their can be a lots of ifs and buts...:D...so can you please explain a lil bit more on what exactly is the issue.

Sorry for the late response
The child domain already exist in a remote location.
The child talks to the parent over a vpn link.
In the DNS of the child, it was observed that the copy of forward lookup zone of the parent is fine.  But creating a forward lookup as Primary on the DNS of the child does not populate the msdcs, and other zones.

What is the implication of changing the copy of the parent to primary and AD Integrated?

Few things before we begin, I am assuming that you are talking about a Windows 2003 Native Domain i.e. no Windows 2000 DCs. Now, if all are 2003, you will not see MSDCS folder on child Domain unless you open the console in parent DNS and change the replication scope of MSDCS folder to the entire forest. This is becase unlike Windows 2000 where all the SRV records for a Child Domain were registered at their own level (Child Level), Windows 2003 only register the SRV Records at the root of the forest level. Which means, it does not really matter how many child Domains you have...You will not see a MSDCS in child Domains unless you change the replication scope of "MSDCS in Parent" to entire forest.  

I know this is confusing, please revert back for the part that you do not understand..:)
