RSAT tools running locally on my PC report differently that console level access

I have four DCs across two sites.  I also have RSAT tools on my local PC to do day to day stuff.

When I load my DNS tool and connect to my DC, it shows "Use root hints..." checked on the DNS forwarder tab.

When I hit the server at the console level, the "Use root hints..." is NOT checked.

I'm curious about why RSAT tools running locally on a PC would reflect different results than the console and I would be curious as to how to correct that.

Local PC is Windows 7 Pro

What is the server version?
Perhaps it is due to the incorrect behavior in 2008 (not R2) as noted here.
