Zone transfers

Trying to understand how zone transfers work

If there are 2 servers which are also DCs and host a AD integrated zone (server 1 and 2).

Then need to make 2 additional servers (3 and 4) host secondary zones

If server 1 is the master server for the zone transfers, which should update the appropriate servers of any change only if there is a change

I'm not grasping DNS so forgive me but..

1) Why would Server 2 NOT be included in the 'Notify' box?

2) I've been told as it hosts the zone, but what is there is a change. Doesn't this server need to know?

3) Why can't servers that host the zone be notified of changes?

4) Also been told server 2 may be  the named servers tab, but once again...doesn't this server (server 2) need to know of any change?

I have never setup AD and intergrated DNS, but if I understand it correctly all DC's that are hosting intergrated AD zone asutomatically get notifiction updates when there is a change to the AD zone.
