If the DC goes down and the information is not there in LHC and the user is trying to access that particular application. The user will not be able to access the application.
Same thing happens when a single server is hosting one apllciation and the logon s are disable the user will not be able to access the application..

If data collector goes down then election happen to choose another dc based on 1.Version 2.Ranking 3.Host-Id according to precedence 1,2,3

In case data collector goes down, the user would not be able to either login or access the application. A polling would occur and the winner would be the next data collector. Since this process takes less than even a minute, the disruption would be minimum.

in 6.5 only controller can be a data collector, Session host cannot be data collector. If Data collector goes down this will prompt the preferred as DC.

note: If all Controller are down, Election process will be based on the highest host ID.

Citrix best practice is to deploy two ZDCs for fail overs. If one goes down the other one takes over.
