DCPROMO Question

I have a Domain with several 2012 R2 DCs and 2 2008 R2 DCs running at a 2008 R2 Native Functional Level. I have been working to replace the 2008 R2 DCs with 2012 R2 DCs so I can raise the Domain Functional Level to 2012 R2. I have migrated the SYSVOL to DFSR, which renamed the SYSVOL folders to SYSVOL_DFSR, which works as the share is still SYSVOL.

My question comes as I’m promoting a new 2012 R2 DC and the “Specify the location of the AD DS database, log files, and SYSVOL” screen comes up with the default name of the SYSVOL folder as SYSVOL. Do I need to change that to SYSVOL_DFSR to be consistent, or do I just leave it as SYSVOL?
