Backup Domain Controller
<networking> (BDC) A server in a network of Microsoft Windows computers
that maintains a copy of the SAM database and handles access requests that the
Primary Domain Controller (PDC) doesn't respond to. There may be zero or more
BDCs in a network. They increase reliability and reduce load on the PDC.
