Short Answer:
If you are using samba and storing user accounts on samba then no, you will 
need to rsync your home folders to the backup and do a few modifications on 
the BDC to make it the PDC.

Your best bet to accomplish a failover for domain authentication is to 
set-up an LDAP master server, and then create slave-servers for fail over. 
Advantages are that you can have many slave servers through out your 
network.If your master fails the clients will search for the nearest slave 
server to authenticate
