Now, if you old server stays online no alaissing then thats no option.. 
You can keep that server separated and add in you script something like this 
\\oldserver\share /username:OLDOMAIN\%username% 
Just make sure username and passwords are same. 
Passthrough auth wil work.
I used that also in a upgrade/migration to samba4. 

That any option? 

Now if your thinking of renameing the DC hostname. 
Just one advice, dont do that, its always giving troubles.

But i would go for Rowlands advice, upgrade the old NT server.
