I'm in the process of setting up my new XenApp 6 farm. I have a main site and a remote site.  and altogether host apps for 200 users. I have setup my farm with two worker groups and two zone. I want all of my users at the remote site to access there own local XenApp server instead of going through the WAN Connection. I also need to setup my remtoe site as a D/R site for my main site in the even our main site goes does.

1) I know you can onlly hve one DS per farm but since I want to use my remtoe site as a D/R site should I create a DS in my remote site. If not, how could I point the farm to a different DS?

2) Should I setup XenApp server perference via a workpolicy?

That is perfectly accecptable.  Worker Groups can be servers from various AD sites, physical sites, remote sites, application silos, XenAPp zones, etc.  In other words, it doesn't matter.  Worker Groups are just logical groupings with no bearing on reality! :)  They are whatever you want them to be.
