I'm not sure, but it is very rarely done if it is.  You would
essentially be setting it up like a DC, with a domain record but that
domain actually being your hostname.  SIDs would point to your server,
and no other server could use that LDAP backend. 

It might be more standard (and therefore easier to get help) if you set
it up as a 'classic/NT4' DC but just never use the DC functionality.
