You probably only have one forest (though its possible you have more)

Heres some powershell to answer some of your questions.

Get some information about the forest:
Get-ADForest

Open in new window


Get a count of domains  (remove ".count" to get a list of the domains):
 $(get-adforest).Domains.Count

Open in new window


If you query your DNS root, you should find the DNS servers that respond for it.  If you query for the NS records, you should find the authority.  To know if these are AD integrated, you need to look at the zones on the DNS servers.

For a particular domain, you can find all the domain controllers funcitoning as a global catalog using this:
get-addomaincontroller -FIlter "IsGlobalCatalog -eq 'True'" | select Name

Open in new window

its built in

Multiple masters are created for DNS replication. Therefore, any domain controller in the domain running the DNS Server service can write updates to the Active Directory–integrated DNS zones for the domain name for which they are authoritative. A separate DNS zone transfer topology is not needed
