You did not tell us the details of your DNS setup.  If the DNS is a
MS DNS Server with secure updates, then the DC should re-register its
records automatically if you re-create the DNS and its zones.

If the DNS is a BIND server, then you can have the netlogon file 
write a netlogon.dns file, which has the CNAME and SRV records that
you can then import into BIND.

If your setup is entirely MS, then you will get better answers by
asking a MS-oriented discussion group.
