Maybe I misunderstood your short origin post.

What exactly you want to do? Migrate a samba 3 PDC to samba 4 AD. Or 
migrate a windows DC to samba AD? If last, then you need a samba 4 
installation, because samba 3 can only be a AD member server and no DC.

What are you running currently and to which system you want to migrate?
