Ok, I think I’ve found a suitable substitute font, MS Gothic ships with Windows XP, Vista,
7, and 8 and has complete Unicode Dingbats coverage:

https://www.microsoft.com/typography/fonts/font.aspx?FMID=1269

See http://www.fonts.com/font/microsoft-corporation/ms-gothic/regular <http://www.fonts.com/font/microsoft-corporation/ms-gothic/regular>
for Dingbats coverage, click “Character Map” and select “2700…27BF Dingbats”.

Would need to check the mappings.
