If AD integrated zones, just check your AD replication.
repadmin /showreps
You will have two partitions
DomainDNSZones and ForestDNSZones
If replication information up to date for each server, the records should be replicated also..

Hi,

You can use Nslookup command to check DNS Records. All your machines that point to your internal DNS will resolve A record and PTR record succesfully.

Nslookup A record or FQDN should return corresponding IP address. Nslookup IP address should return corresponding FQDN.
