Customer Defaults:
Drafting > Annotation > Dimensions (tab) > Dimension Decimal Places
Drafting Standards > Annotation > Units (tab) > Zero's Display > Trailing Zeros

Drafting Preferences:
Dimension > Text > Units: Decimal Places
Dimension > Text > Units: Show Trailing Zeros

For all new files going forward, edit the customer defaults and then inherit the changes into the drawing/sheet templates (either the ones supplied with NX or your customized templates) via the Drafting Preferences (inherit option at the bottom of the dialog), unless you use the blank template which automatically inherit the customer defaults.

For existing parts, edit the drafting preferences (either manually or inherit the customer defaults) to make changes going forward for those parts. For existing dimensions, right click and edit their Settings.
