Yes ... no consequences as Exchange 2010 can only understand and will allow to work with Universal groups.

If this a Mixed Environment with some Legacy and 201 server you have to convert the DL to Universal in EMC and then proceed with the Modifications :)

Hope you have the rights to do the modifications ... I mean the account is a member of "Recipient Org group" in a way :)

If you convert the Distribution Group to a Universal Group this should resolve the issue. Also, please have a look at the link I provided below.
