SYSVOL replication issue

I have four DCs. One is running 2008 and is the primary. The other three are running 2003.

When I create a GPO on any one of the DCs, the policy listing in active directory replicates to each server, but the corresponding SYSVOL listing is only created on the 2008 server, and it does not replicate to the 2003 servers. It does not even create on the 2003 server if I create the policy on said server.

However, if I copy the corresponding SYSVOL GPO folder from the 2008 server and paste it in the SYSVOL directory of any one of the 2003 servers, replication instantly occurs across the other two 2003 servers.

Any ideas why?
