Hi ironkernel,

I'd recommend the following:
1. Keep authentication local, install a local DC and ensure DHCP is installed on the DC - I'd have a second DC at the remote office if possible that way you not only have built-in redundancy for your DC but replication traffic is far less significant than the traversing everything over the VPN plus its a Best Practice.
2. Create a Site in AD Sites and Services and add the subnet IP to this site
3. Make sure your DC is configured as a GC (AD Sites and Services)
For whatever reason if you cannot install a local DC and DHCP then I would recommend to create a new scope on one of your DHCP and then configure IP Helper address.  

With virtualization technologies today, I recommend you entertain option 1 mentioned above.

You need to configure LDAP authentication on your remote SonicWall.

Documentation for that is here:  http://rdsrc.us/LjyZFk
