This depents, what you mean with '2 instances':

Are this two different domains? Then no, because domain trusts are not
fully implemented in Samba AD yet. Trusts between two Samba 4
NT4-domains works, like in the past. But you talked about at least one
Samba AD domain.

If the Samba 3.x servers are joined to the Samba AD (all within the same
domain), then it's not problem. Then it's just another domain member.
