USN Number is not consistent with Infrastructure Master role holder on Domain Controllers

Under ADUC/System/DomainUpdates/Windows2003Update in properties under the object tab the USN number is 4410, and 8199 on 2 of my DC's. My DC that holds all 5 fsmo roles has a USN number of 8253, as well as my other 6 DC's. Why do the 2 DC's have different USN numbers and what problems can this cause, and what should I do to resolve this? Or is it ok that the USN numbers are different?
