To really give you any kind of useful information we'd need more details... for starters, what's the version of Backup Exec you're working with?  What's your backup plan?  Are the domain controllers at the same site?

Here are a few links from Symantec that discuss disaster recovery using Backup Exec in a Windows environment:

Manual disaster recovery of Windows computers

Step by step guide for Simplified Disaster Recovery (SDR) with Backup Exec 2012

Best practices for Backup Exec 2012 Simplified Disaster Recovery

Ultimately there's a TON of information out there on this subject... much of the creation of a plan is dependent on how your infrastructure is laid out and how everything is used and managed.

You can try any back up restore software for your AD
It will collect your AD current state so if any disaster will happen you can able to recover it via that snapshot of AD
You just need to add all DC in it and take a back up of the software it will be very easy option
for this

I would backup systemstate of both the domain controllers.
Also run CSVDE to export all the user information to CSVDE.
