Yes. It is a new domain.

Creating a new domain isn't the same as adding a new / additional DC to
an existing domain [Samba doesn't really do PDC/BDC but multiple-PDC].  

A domain is identified by it's SID which is 'randomly' generated.  If
your 'new' domain has a different SID the clients will view it as a
different domain.
