To be honest, Disaster Recovery on a Domain Controller is as simple as promoting an additional domain controller into your domain and ensuring it is running as an additional DNS server. You might also want to use DFS to replicate all user information to this server.

If the DC holding FSMO roles goes down for an extended period and will never come back online, then you have to seize FSMO roles. Other than that it's not overly difficult.
