There is only one server.  That server will be doing *everything*.
There are no other servers.  There will be no other server(s).  That is
the way it has been for years.  That is the way it will remain.

If a Samba4 AD DC cannot play well in that scenario: I'll downgrade (and
I use "down" advisedly) to Samba3.  Then, if, at some time in the future
the company wants AD, they can buy an MS-Win server.
