This might a related, just mentioning it. 

after moving or seizing the FSMO roles, the old server can still be found as dns record as _ldap._tcp._pdc._msdcs.dom.tld 

In most cases a move or seize involve a dead/broken server but in the case you are not removing a "dead" server, you end up with 2 _pdc records. 

discussed this with Rowland, his reply on it:
