I take it by 'services' you mean the 'smbd' , 'nmbd' and 'winbindd' 
binaries, if so, then you only need the 'smbd' & 'nmbd' binaries on both.

You do not need dns with an NT4-style domain, it uses netbios instead.

Can I stress how important it is that anyone who is still using an 
NT4-style domain upgrades to AD. From Samba 4.11.0, they will no longer 
work by default, though you can reconfigure smb.conf to keep them working.
