Samba as AD DC with internal LDAP or Samba as an NT4 PDC with openLDAP

I don't understand that requirement. You can authenticate AD users via
LDAP, like you can against other LDAP servers.

If you mean if you can have an Samba AD DC with an external LDAP
backend: No, you can't (yet).

If you mean how you can setup a Samba AD DC and migrate accounts from
your Samba NT4 domain, see

Can you explain what you mean here?

If you give us more details about your environment and what your goals
are, it's easier to help. And if you ask such questions on the Samba
user mailing list, instead of the Samba developer list, you're having a
greater chance to get answers. ;-)
