DFS permissions question

I have two sites.
Site A: Houses the file and mail servers
Site B: Remote site that has no server and connects to files and exchange via VPN.

I am putting a server in Site B and would like to use DFS to replicate the shared files to Site B from Site A.

When I create the DFS share, will it effect the security permissions already in place?

If you create a DFS system and then set the permissions on those objects, then the permissions are replicated across. It is not possible to have permissions in site 1 different to site 2, because users could theoretically connect to either share.
