Difference between Domain Controller Security Policy & Domain Security Policy

I want to use same security policies of auditing for my domain pcs and domain controllers.
i want to disbale security policies of domain controller as the same policies are being used in domain controller polices for auditing section.

My question is if i disbale auditing policies in domain controller security polices, will i get the same auduting logs on my Domain controller by using domain controller policies as the DCs are also a part of domain.

Ask me if any thing is not clear....

I suspect that defining it at domain level would be sufficiant.  If, however, you disable it in the DC policy, there will be a conflict which may result in the policy not being applied to your domain controllers.

Default Domain Security Settings set security policies for all computers in a domain (including DC's). Domain Controller Security Settings take precedence over the Domain Security Policy for DCs. So, if setting is not defined in DC security settings, one from Default Domain security Settings will be applied to DC's.
