Do you want to have 2 separate domains (domain A and domain B) or do you
want to have the same domain with the same users in both offices?

In first case, you have to look at interdomain trusts and in case B i
think (fixme) that you could be a PDC and a BDC to synchorinise it.

Look at the official howto in this 2 topics.
