STD 2008 R2 on one DC vs ENT 2008 R2 on other DC for raising domain and forest level!!!

I had this question after viewing Service Pack Levels for Domain Controllers befpre raising Domain/Forest Function Levels frm 2003 to 2008 R2.

Follow-up question... Is there going to be an impact from the fact that one of the DC's is running 2008 R2 ENTERPRISE and the other 2008 R2 STANDARD?????

Im sure when you go to raise the level it will only allow you whats possible. You could try  on both and see what it allows before committing.

Sorry that does not make sense. What do you mean I can try both? I wanted to know if AD cares that one DC is ENT 2008 R2 and the other STD 2008 R2. I would of course use the primary DC (ENT 2008 R2) to do the domain/forest raise, but will the fact that the other is 2008 R2 but STD edition matter, i.e. do they need to be only on the same o/s version (2008 R2 and both have that) or also on the same release version?

Its been a while but before you commit to raising you will see what level it can be raised to. So I said to see what each one offers and I believe you can only raise it as high as the lowest DC in the org. I may be wrong but there is no r2 standard?  I believe R2 is Ent.
