Apart from the possible 'bdc' records in AD, I don't think you have a
replication problem. I say possible 'bdc' records, because they could
be tombstones and you cannot easily delete them.

Coming back to the replication, from what you have posted, you have this
topology:

         Matriz site        Filail site
            DC1 --------------- DC3
             |
             |
            DC2  

You don't actually want replication between DC2 & DC3, this would
mean using the WAN link. DC2 would replicate to DC1 (and
visa versa), DC1 would replicate to DC3 (and visa versa again).
