Sorry, but that is incorrect, each DC should use itself for its 
nameserver. There is probably not much point in adding any other DC's as 
nameservers, if the dns server on the DC isn't working, then quite 
probably the DC isn't working either.

Domain clients have to use the dns servers on the DC's, but this doesn't 
mean they have to use them directly, you could point your clients to a 
separate dns server and this server would forward all the AD domain dns 
requests to a DC.
