Windows 2003 Servers in different subnets

I would like to implement replication between Windows 2003 servers in different subnets. Server A is in head office with ip range 192.168.1.0, and server B is in the branch office with ip range 192.168.2.0. I would like server B to handle DNS and DHCP requests for it's ip range, while replicating data to server A. We currently do have a VPN connection between branches which is handled at the firewall level. What would be the best practice to follow ?

If you have AD- integrated DNS zones, then things are very easy, because DNS replication will take place automagically.
For DHCP, you will need to DHCP relay configured in the other subnet or you can define scopes following rule 80/20.
let me know if this is this answer to your question.

Set up a site & subnet for each 'office' and then AD will get on with the replication.

AD sites and services will NOT help with replication.  Replication is not dependent on AD sites and services.  
AD sites and services is used so each site that is defined has a domain controller there - the local clients will use this local DC instead of crossing the WAN for AD requests.
Again replication is not dependent on this.
