One domain controller holds all FSMO domain roles
-Infrastructure master
-RID Master
-PDC Emulator

The same domain controller holds all FSMO forest roles as well
-Domain Naming Master
-Schema Master

There are 5 domain controllers think there is a better way to separate this,

What would be the best way to organise this?

I would think the forest roles and domain roles should be on different domain controllers? Correct?
