From the link given above.
#  Single domain forest. If your Active Directory forest design requires only a single domain, then the forest root domain will also contain all your users, groups, and resources. To deploy this model, you can create an organizational unit (OU) structure after the forest root domain deployment is complete. Then you can restructure Windows NT account and resource domains into the forest root domain.

# Multiple domain forest. In a multiple domain design, the forest root domain can be a dedicated root used only for administration of the forest, or it can contain users, groups, and resources in addition to the forest administration accounts. Once the forest root domain is deployed, the forest owner will create one or more regional child domains to complete the Active Directory forest hierarchy. The regional domains can be created either by upgrading existing Windows NT 4.0 or Microsoft® Windows® 2000 domains or by deploying additional new domains.
