    i’m having the same problem (in server 2003).

    I recently added another DC and added the DNS role and configured it as a primary AD integrated server.

    the “backup” DC (BDC) has itself set as its preferred DNS server and the PDC as its secondary.

    However, if i shut down the PDC – i lose all DNS on the network.

    I’m havent checked if i lose ability for users to authenticate, but I know that DNS doesnt “Fail over” to the BDC.

    Which kinda defeats the purpose of having added the BDC (lol hooray for virtualisation)

    p.s – i dont even know what fsmo roles are…….. or why i would transfer them?
