Is it possible to have reliable replication and fail over with a single domain controller?

I plan on having hyperv 2012 server on one server with a single domain controller and a hypervisor on the 2nd server.  If the domain controller is down then i assume replication and logins wont be possible. therefore i need a backup domain controller, right?

2 or more is always the best practice.

What is it replicating to if there is only 1?

Hi,

Best practise/correct approach is to have 2 domain controller on 2 different Hypervisors.

Please find more in on "Running Domain Controller in Hyper V"

Implement and install another Domain Controller. A single Domain Controller is not recommended.
