I have (2) Server 2008 DC's, One here locally and one in another office. The users here locally are unable to authenticate to the local DC, but are able to authenticate to the other office DC.

Why? What do I need to check on the local DC?

What do you mean they are unable to locate locally.  If the remote DC is off can they not authenticate?
How are your sites setup in AD?
Thanks

If the remote site is off then NO the users here can not authenticate.

Two things make sure you have the clients pointing to their DNS server that is onsite. Second make sure that both DCs are Global Catalogs.

Make sure you have AD Sites and Services setup with two sites.
