I will accept your answer because I did not know about triggering replication in AD Sites and Services MMC, although that seems to not make a difference in my situation.

After repeated testing (PowerShell script loop running nslookup), I consistently see zones replicated between servers at the same -- and even different -- sites within one or two minutes. Unfortunately, I have not been able to reduce the time by any of your suggestions, although I am very grateful for the help.

I tested everyone's suggestions and I just can not find a way to affect replication speed. It seems that there is still a 2-3 minute delay, no matter what I do.

yeah I am familiar with dnscmd. I am just not sure if I should use repadmin to push or pull the changes to/from the other DNS servers. Wow my previous comment was overly complex!

I've tried repadmin, but I have not been able to get a proven solution. If you can share an example you've used for this situation, that would be a great help. Can you share how you would make the change? For example, change zone to be AD integrated on server A (primary zone). Delete zone on server B, then run repadmin on server B? Or do I run repadmin on server A? Server A and B? What if A and B are same site? Different sites?

I was seeing replication times upwards of 1-2 minutes between servers at the same site during my testing today. I will try forcing replication as suggested by HopelessN00b to see if that helps.
