You are speaking and thinking in terms of NT4 which was retired 10 yrs ago and replaced with Active Directory.

Web search the following;

Enabling the global catalog
Seizing FSMO roles
Cleanup Active Directory metadata

Hopefully the remaining DC is also running DNS server or you have other issues to address.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

Knowing how to deal with such problems is a major responsibility of anyone administering a network. There should be detailed procedures established BEFORE problems occur.
