It doesn't matter, because in my suggestion, one domain would die and
you re-create all users in the other and join all machines to the new one.

You need of course a connection between the two sites (LAN, VPN, etc.).
Depending on the changes that happen in AD, a small bandwidth can be
sufficient. AD sites work great with Samba.
In AD you setup sites and configure replication between them. I

About how many user accounts and groups are we talking in the smaller
domain? And about how many workstations?
