To All Experts;

I have 10 DCs 2003 and DNS's integrated zone servers spread across the USA and wanted to know that when DNS replication schedule kick-in, is this mean that I'm replicating all the database or just the changes? Let's say for example the size of the DB is 100MB is this mean I'm replicating 100MB across the WAN? Second question is what is the best practice as far as  DNS replication schedule?

You are replicating just the changes in your 2003 domain.  You can also read about link value replication here:

Just let your AD Integrated DNS replicate on the same schedule as AD.   That is fine.
Thanks

Righ now my AD replication schedule is every 15 mins, is this even necessary? If I make change to the replication schedule to just once every hour will the AD replication still ok. I don't make changes to the AD much.

Also How to check and enable the LVR in my AD 2003?

Right click on your domain in AD Users and computers.  With all Windows 2003 DCs you should be at Windows 2003 forest functional level. (general tab)  If you are then your groups are using LVR.
Are you seeing any overload on your WAN links at 15 minutes for the intersite replication?  If you increase to an hour replication will be fine...just obviously not happen as often.
