[Samba] Changing Samba PDC to a different machine (and netbios name)

Is it possible/feasible to change the samba PDC name to a different 
machine with a new netbios name?

the reason for this is, that I want to do the update NT4 Domain -> ADC 
and since it's recommended to not have PDC and file server on the same 
machine I was going to seperate them. For that I'd need to have a 
different server act as PDC.

Also another part of the question is: is it easier to do this with the 
NT4 domain still, or in the process of upgrading NT4->PDC, or
