Microsoft ended support of NT4 servers over 15 years ago, but kept the 
client code, but it is now actively trying to remove it, hence new 
Windows 10 installs have SMBv1 turned off. You can never know just when 
they will totally remove it, but I am sure it will be removed.

Samba is actively trying to remove SMBv1 and will deprecate it, along 
with NT4-style domains, possibly at 4.13.0, but if not, definitely at 4.14.0

To put it bluntly, NT4-style domains have a limited life left and it 
will probably be a toss-up who removes them first, Microsoft or Samba.
