If absolutely necessary, you can replace a Domino joint: just cut through the loose tenon with a very thin saw (if it's not already broken or pulled out) and use the mortiser to cut two new mortises. Then glue a new tenon into the new mortises. The Domino machine will cut right through the old broken tenon and whatever glue was used to hold it together.

Note also that a smaller Domino tenon can be used as a peg to hold a larger tenon in place. You use the machine to punch a new mortise through the side of the assembled joint, and drive a tenon in to pin it.
