You should see FRS SYSVOL replication as old and it should no longer be used. With FRS SYSVOL replication all kind of problems could arise and in most case on a SBS this would be Journal Wrap errors. Those Journal wrap errors will prevent SYSVOL replication as soon as you introduce the new Domain Controller when you are migrating to a new operating system.
