> Would it be better to then do the lvm snapshots against primary?

if you snapshot the underlying lv while drbd is Connected Secondary,
you should be fine.  you then can mount that snapshot, let the fs replay its
journal, and do your backup (on the secondary).

just don't snapshot during drbd resynchronisation.
