Depents on what do you mean by incompatiblity. A lot of changes were 
made since the 2 years 4.2 was released. Some defaults have been 
changed, new features were introduced that may change some behaviour in 
your envirionment, etc.

The most notable changes are listed on the "Updating Samba" page. 
Additionally, read the x.y.0 release notes of all versions you skip to 
make sure that there aren't some more changes that affect your environment.

Everything important is described on this page.


PS: In an AD, there is no primary|secondary DC. Just call them DC. :-)
