Secondary domain controlloer

By basheerpt ·
I would like to get an advice on deploying a secondary domain controller in the organization.
At present we have a domain controller with AD integrated DNS serving around 500 users, it is located in HQ. It is win2K3 and having another DC (BDC) to support it as global catalog.

Now the question, I have another location which is connected by p2p currently people are not joined to the HQ domain, but log in through the Citrix. To avoid the hassles of citrix launching and loading, i want to remove citrix and login directly to the domain. Is it good idea to have an additional domain controller in this location to serve only the people here?

What is the best practice in this scenario? can a secondary DNS for this location? I would like to have expert advise who managed these type of situation.

Thanks for your help and best regards.
