Yes. It does. 
This is due the "big" change made in 2016 by Microsoft.

More important and not known, where u used RDP, which Client OS+version is used.

Nope and this is also the best option.

I could assist in a Jessie to stretch to buster upgrade. 
Only thing is, i know whats coming and i recommend setup a new server setup straight on buster.
Sieze the FSMO, and remove the old server.

See up ;-)
