How DFS Replicates

If I am not wrong Windows DFS can replicates the content of folders between group members.
So if I have a file in Server1 that has been changed by user1  and the same file was previously replicated to Server2 and has been changed by user 2…

in this case would Replication take time stamp into consideration? I mean whatever file was saved the last in time will overwrite the copy in other Server ?

Any clarification on the DFS replication will be appreciated..

Thank you

If Server1 is in Tokyo and Server2 is in Paris, assuming  file1 has been created in Server1 in Tokyo and replicated to Server2 in Paris, I will fly to Paris and work on work on File1 while another user is working on the same file in Tokyo…in this case the last one saved is the one that will overwrite the other ?

So If I understand DFS Replication, is good only as Failover if the primary server crashes or as Recovery if the primary file is deleted…
