When Creating a new DNS in a DC that is part of the domain, will the forward and reverse lookup zones replicate to the new DNS and will show up in the DNS console or do I have t o manually create them?
iBTW , t's AD Integrated in the existing DNS servers.

If the new zones are AD integrated, they will get replicated via AD replication. However, you still need to manually make the zones in the console as AD Integrated. Once they are made the replicated data will appear.

No you do not have to manually create them. They will appear once replication completes.

I demoted that DC and still haven't promoted it  yet. I was waiting for DNS to replicated but the computer is not a DC again yet .
I will promote it back again to DC and see about DNS zone replication.

You are right, I just promoted the server to AD and boom the DNS zones got replicated automatically.
I didn't have to create any zone in the DNS console.
