    According to canon, the wand's allegiance is passed down to the person who defeats the original owner. We have many examples of that (An assassin murdering one of the Peverell Brothers for the Elder Wand; Harry disarming Draco for both the Elder Wand and Draco's Wand). The allegiance only passes down if it's taken without the owner's consent (Dumbledore planned on having the wand's allegiance die with him, as his Death by Snape was consented).

    But what would happen if, let's say, Voldemort had used the Imperius curse on Draco, and Draco disarmed Dumbledore?

    On one hand, Draco would have been the one disarming Dumbledore, but then again, it wasn't of his own volition, as Voldemort would have been the one controlling Draco. In that case, who would be owning 1/3 of the Deathly Hallows?

    Preferably canon answers

    since it didn't happen in the books, the only way you'd get a canon answer would be to ask the author. any answer we give is going to be based on our own, often limited, knowledge of the workings of "wand chooses the wizard" which was not explained overly well in the novels. Also. we do not know the range, or duration, of the imperius curse, only that it was used successfully as a defence for dark wizards to escape justice.
