A PDC doesn't have any FSMO roles, only an AD DC can hold FSMO roles and
there are 7 of those:
There is (as you can see above) a role called 'PDC Emulator' but this
has nothing to do with a PDC.
The roles do not need to be all on one DC, in fact, if you have 7 DCs,
you could have an FSMO role on each DC.
To see which DC holds which FSMO role, you can run on a DC:
