Treat it in a manner similar to a Windows AD DC. I'm doing the same because the Samba3 smbd is less than 1/10 the memory footprint
than samba4 smbd, you will need to include --with-ads when you build your samba3 fileserver, and change smb.conf to use
 security = ADS

I think its also important to keep in mind the different language.  Samba4 provides a much more sophisticated feature-full Active
Directory Domain Controller (AD DC), whilst Samba3 provided a Primary Domain Controller (PDC).
