Your post is way too vague

 have a domain configured where i replicate my active directory infrastructure (do you mean AD integrated zone file) to remote sites. I have one site(AD site?) that will not allow me to access certain sites (web sites?)from it, all my DNS entries are correct but it (what is it?) cannot resolved

Lets start with what DNS actually does do when you try to resolve a Domain name.  Please include the name of your domain (the domain in which the client seeking resolution resides) , the zones in your domain, and the domain you are trying to resolve.

I looked at the sequence of the root hints on another machine and it was in descending order, but on this machine it was in ascending order, so i removed all the root hints and copied them from the other server.

I also saw this error in my event file

The zone dwq.denr was previously loaded from the directory partition MicrosoftDNS but another copy of the zone has been found in directory partition DomainDnsZones.DWQ.DENR. The DNS Server will ignore this new copy of the zone. Please resolve this conflict as soon as possible.
If an administrator has moved this zone from one directory partition to another this may be a harmless transient condition. In this case, no action is necessary. The deletion of the original copy of the zone should soon replicate to this server.
If there are two copies of this zone in two different directory partitions but this is not a transient caused by a zone move operation then one of these copies should be deleted as soon as possible to resolve this conflict.
To change the replication scope of an application directory partition containing DNS zones and for more details on storing DNS zones in the application directory partitions, please see Help and Support.
