[Samba] Samba4, multiple domains and a forest

I have tested Samba4 as an AD domain controller for a small group of
computers and it works really great.

My question is about multi-domains and forest.

We plan to eventually use Samba4 for a large amount of entities (60+).
These entitites should share resources between each other.

As we have a central site, we were guessing to use Samba4 as to create
a forest and create as much domains as there are remote sites.

2 questions :

* Is it possible to have 1 samba4 dc on each site to handle the site's
  domain ?
* Will it tolerate network disruption between the site and the central
  dc ?

Thanks for your advices.
