We have 3 physical (and logical) sites. Each site is on a different subnet connected via routers. we have a DNS server at each site. We have 1 Domain. When configuring a new DNS server at a new Site we need to know if we should choose "Primary Zone" or "Secondary Zone" at the new Site.

For a domain you can have one primary server and many secondary servers.

For Reverse lookup zone, you may have the dns server is one site to be the primary server for the reverse zone for the subnet it is in. DNS servers in other sites might be configured secondary for that reverse zone.
