Try using rpcclient to connect to the domain's PDC and use the
lsaquery command.

Alternatively, go to a workstation on that domain and search the
registry for a key called ProfileList.  Find a key under it
corresponding to a user in the domain and remove the RID (the last
component of the SID) to obtain the domain's SID.
