Once you add the fileshare service (add role services to fileserver role) that includes support for windows 2003 file services, this and the other errors should go away.

Windows 2003 uses NTFRS to replicate sysvol data. the 2008 and newer use DFSR to replicate sysvol data.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I never added support for 2003 file services explicitly for this to work
what is the domain and forest functional level of domain?

Also check if netlogon and sysvol is shared on new DC, I guess not
Also check if file replication service is started in auto mode on 2012 DC

You might try to force NTFRS replication

Else forcefully demote \ remove the 2012 servers from domain, clear out problem and again add new 2012 DCs

Mahesh, note old DC in the example you posted is SBS 2011 (Server 2008) if I am not mistaken.
The issue the asker has here is the DC they have in this environment is Server 2003.  The sysvol is available seemingly through replication with other Server 2012s.

I doubt if sysvol is available on 2012 DCs because I suspect that FRS service is not running as well

Only author can confirm

Mahesh, The asker has had various other questions on this topic which is how I have come to understand so much about the situation.

The person has multiple DC including 2012s of which this one was just added.
If this DC has a way to reach any of the other 2012 DCs the replication for sysvol could have occurred while the DNS service periodically throws the errors listed in this and other questions. Yes, the DNS zone could very well be current by the same process.
These errors could be sporatic when this 2012 DC contacts the 2003 DC for replication/etc. at which point these errors are generated, they could be intermittent, but show up daily or hourly.
