All DC's are equal, there isn't really one that is called primary and
there isn't one you could describe as a backup. The best you can say is
that one DC has the PDC_Emulator FSMO role and the other doesn't, but
you could transfer that role.
I take it that these DC's are Samba AD DC's and if they are, are they
both running an NTP server ? and if they exist, do these NTP servers
point at your pfsense machine ?
By default, Windows domain members will use the the computer with the
PDC_Emulator FSMO role, provided it is running an NTP server.
I suggest you re-read the wikipage I pointed to earlier and double check
