Okay i have 10 sites....5 DNS Servers spread out through 4 sites....Sites 1, 2, 3, 4,

DNS Server A and B are in site 1
DNS Server C is in site 2
DNS Server D is in site 3
DNS Server E is in site 4

How should DNS between servers be setup???

all servers are set to their own IP Address and then the Main Server which holds the roles for domain as secondary.....all other servers are in the dns servers tab for each server....

Reason asking is because i did a scan this role in server manager and it mentioned that servers loopback should not be first in list but i remember correctly when setting up it was emphasized that i wanted it that way.....which is correct???? and how should it be setup????

Thanks for any help....

BPAs are good in general, but they're not perfect.  If you've got multiple DNS servers in one site, like you do at site 1, you should configure them to point to each other first and themselves second.  This ensures that whenever one of the servers is booting up, its preferred DNS server will already be online (unless you reboot them both at the same time, so don't do that).

How you configure the servers at the branch sites may vary, though.  If you've got fast, reliable links between those sites and the central site, you can go ahead and point each of them to the central site first and themselves second, but if the links are slow and/or not always reliable, there's nothing wrong with the way you've already got them configured.
