Active directory users cannot logon to remote desktop when hamachi connection is down

We have 2 domain controllers (Server A and Server B) connected and replicating over a LogMeIn Hamachi VPN connection.  Both servers are running Terminal Services.  We want to turn Server A off and decommission it.  When we turn server A off users cannot log in to remote desktop on server B.  They get an error that no logon server are available.  How do I force Server B to serve logins for remote desktop on Server B without Server A being available?

You say both are terminal servers but is server A also a domain controller?

Yes. Both are DC's. We used Hamachi to help migrate from office to colo.
