[Samba] Samba4 - PDC to DC file replication

I have built two samba4 boxes, one as a PDC and the as a DC, all working
perfectly. If I create a user through the mmc snapin then turn off the PDC,
I can still login to the domain using the DC which is great. The problem is
their file permissions.

I have assigned user and group rights using windows explorer to certain
folders, i.e granted user1 full permissions to that folder

The problem I have is trying to replicate the users data/files from PDC to
DC whilst keeping the NTFS permissions that have been set. Rysnc doesnt
seem to keep the ntfs permissions

The reason for this is if the PDC goes down, user logs on using the DC and
can access their files which have retained their files and permissions.

Is there some way to achieve this?

Any help appreciated.
