I am in process of reinstalling my domain controller, i have done all the steps necessary and already the domain is depromoted. however i have a question related to DNS, i have created another DNS server and already replicated the data , but is there a combination of a Master and slave DNS ?, and if the domain controller i had is the master how can i transfer the role to the other DNS server?

If you are using AD integrated DNS then NO - all DNSs are equal - nothing to do.

Make sure that you have transfered all the FSMO roles and installed Global catalog on the new DC and have made all clients (and the new DC itself) point to the new DC as the preferred DNS server
