I converted a Domain Controller using Vmware Convertor. All loaded find - except the DNS zone is not populated. I have the secondary domain controller which is also a vmware machine which the DNS is fine. Will the original replicate itself?

HOW did you convert the existing Domain Controller ?

Best Practice and recommended method, is to create a new Server, Add the Active Directory Role, and them wait for replication, and then Transfer the FSMO roles.

IF and ONLY if there is no other method VMware Converter can be used, following a special procedure.

I would suggest that the Conversion, is not 100% complete which is the danger with a P2V.

Have you checked your logs, and checked replication?
