Integrating domain controllers or creating a secondary zone

I have been told by a colleague that if you have an Active Directory-integrated DNS zone, you can either make other domain controllers AD-integrated or a secondary zone. What is the difference between the two and what would be the advantages and disadvantages of implementing either zone on our additional remote servers connected by a 256Kbps WAN link? Thanks in advance.

I don't have resources at hand to address this one. Maybe search on and with the keywords of DNS, integrated, and secondary zone for possible information.
