From memory, by default it's on 'To all DNS Servers running on domain controllers in this domain::::Domain'

This is just the replication partition it uses to transfer the zone. Unless you have a requirement to transfer this to other domains in the forest, leave it as it is.

Option 2 is the default is the default, more on that here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc772101.aspx

I'd use that option just to use the DomainDNS partition but keeping it as is works too.

For those that like visuals the screenshot below is what he is looking at

Ace has a great overview of the zone types

You just need to set it once not on every DNS server.  Once AD replication happens the AD Integrated zone will be replicated.

You will see the following message:

DNS
