Copying scripts to the netlogon share

Hi guys hope you are all well.
We have an AD 2003  forest with multiple domains.
We have domain A with approximately 50 domain controllers.
What I want to know, is this.
I want to copy around 20 logon scripts from domain B to domain A.
Is there a "master" role that a specific domain controller has that copies all logon scripts from its netlogon share to other domain controllers netlogon share in the replication process?
Or, do i just copy the logon scripts to any domain controllers' netlogon share and wait until replication has completed?
I basically want to know if there is a preferred domain controller I should use to copy the scripts to.

Thanks in advance.

Hi There,

You can place it in to any of the domain controllers NETLOGON shares and it will replicate to all other DC's.

Thanks

Hi Russ,
Thanks for that.
I just wanted to clarify that there is no "master/authoritative" domain controller that I should copy them to.
Thanks for that.

Every DC is a "master"....multimaster replication.   So as long as your replication is healthy any DC is fine.

Thanks

And this is a great way to discover if there's something wrong with your AD replication :-)
