Difference Between Authoratative and Non

Simple:

Imagine you have 2 Domain Controllers and a full backup of yesterday. Today you delete a user in Active Directory Users and Computers. You realize you made a mistake. You can restore it thanks to your backup.
On one DC, restore the system state when you're in AD Restore mode. With the NTDSUTIL command (in a dos box), you tell Windows it will be an authoritative restore (see help on that command for syntax). Then you reboot.
In that case, the restored user will be authoritative. It means that, even though the second DC doesn't have that user anymore in its database AND its AD version is greater than the AD you restored on the 1st DC, it will accept the update, that is the "new" user.
In non-autoritative restore, the AD of the DC you restored will be updated by other AD.

Hope this will help you...
