A contractor who was removing a dead Oak tree knocked of one trunk of my dual Ponytail Palm. He said it would grow back. Is this true or do I have to demand he replace it.

I'm sorry that your plant suffered damage.
Your plant can survive this accident.
If the trunk at the break point is less then 6inches in diameter it will branch at that point into several segments and keep growing.
If your plant is more mature, it will also split and continue growing. Ponytail Palm are very slow growing so recovery will be slow.
