    According to the 70-270 Windows XP Pro Self-Paced Training Kit by Walter Glenn and Tony Northrup it states,

    A domain controller is a computer running Windows 2000 Server that is configured as a domain controller so that it can manage all security-related aspects of user and domain interactions.

    Why do they state Windows 2000 Server and not Server 2003?

    It can be anything from 2000 - 2008 depending on what you have installed. They hold a copy of the active directory listings of all the objects in the domain and manage who and can do what on the dommain.

    Because Server 2003 wasn't out when that book was written.

    Even though it mentions Server 2003 throughout the book?

    If that's the case, then you've got a later edition, and they simply neglected to update that single line of text. Dude, they're human... mistakes happen.

    What matters is, that you understand what a Domain Controller is. The version that its on, whether is 2000, 2003 or 2008 does not make a difference.
