I understood that a Secure Zone is only needed when the only option is
to backup on the PRIMARY disk. A secure zone is not needed or
recommended on secondary disks. And yes, it makes sense to have an
image apart from the primary disk in case of disk failure.

I've never tried backing up to DVD but the method Chris described is
the one that I would use.
