You can take the systemstate backup of all the DC daily for AD backup.
Also do the full backup of the server weekly.
If the Server win2k3 you can use ntbackup to back the systemstate and data.

If the DC is win2k8 you can use wbadmin to backup the systemstate.You need to add the feature for windows server backup.http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc770266(WS.10).aspx
Refer this link to fire system statebackup:
