SMB1 seems to be the only way, if you don't want/can't migrate to Samba AD.

MS skipped NT4 support already some Windows versions ago. So you need to
accept some limitations. However you should really think about moving to
AD. Maybe some day MS shipps an update for a current Windows OS, that
breaks the NT4 stuff.

However, to limit the PDC to SMB1-only is much better than disabling all
newer versions on each client, like some guides on the internet suggest.
If you want the improvements of newer SMB protocol versions, you can
setup a domain member server as file server. This one can of course have
newer protocol versions enabled. Only the PDC is the one you need to
limit to SMB1.
