Does anyone have any imput as to whether it's better to create multiple primary servers for DNS w/ integrated zones, or to create one primary server w/ secondary zones.

I can't seem to find documentation on different setups and which is better.

I think the definitions in the Zone Type dialog box provides enough of an answer:

Primary Zone - Stores a copy of the zone that can be updated directly.

Secondary Zone - Stores a copy of an existing zone. This option helps balance the processing load of primary servers and provides fault tolerance.

well the definition that you've posted is just what they do. I knew what they did.
What I wanted to know was if you had one setup with primary servers on two DC's, would that give you more benifit over one DC with a primary and one secondary?

As in, in the long run, what is better in terms of +/-

with the primary DNS, if you have replication between the DC's, won't that also provide fault tolorance with the added benifit of being able to edit on each DC?
