When the option to 'Provision distribution groups' is selected when running the Administrator Driven Batch Migrator a path to an existing organizational unit for distribution groups must be specified on the 'Specify Active Directory Information' screen.

There can be spaces present and it is not case-sensitive. For example, the following would also be valid:
OU = child, ou=Parent
