Burning a DVD with Dolby Digital source

I have a source video with Dolby Digital sound. If I burn it to DVD does Toast convert it to Stereo or will the burnt DVD still have the Dolby Digital track?

On page 25 of the User Manual it states 

"Making a DVD or BD Video Disc

DVDs and Blu-ray Discs are both excellent choices for producing high quality video discs with full menu navigation and Dolby Digital sound."

Just want to check they are saying Toast can burn a Dolby Digital track.

Dolby Digital is a codec (AC3), not necessarily a channel count. Dolby Digital can be 5.1 or less, even 1.0 (mono).
That being said, Toast re-encodes audio to stereo (PCM or Dolby Digital), unless the source (video+audio) is already compliant for the destination format (according to Toast). Compliant streams are copied as-is, including 5.1 audio.
