There are three predefined Naming Contexts (NC)
  1. Domain Naming Context  - one per domain
  2. Configuration Naming Context - one per forest
  3. Schema Naming Context - one per forest
You can also define your own naming context in Windows 2003 and later -- called Application Partitions
Replication issues are not specific to a naming context.
