It's actually very simple: promote a second domain controller, make it a global catalog and DNS server*, and use AD-integrated DNS zones. You'll need to configure the other machines in the network to use both servers for DNS, but that's about all there is to it.

The Flexible Single Master Operations (FSMO) roles can't be load balanced - they must reside on one DC or the other - though the five roles can be distributed between the two DCs.

*EDIT: I should have noted that these options will be available during the promotion process.
