[Samba] Choosing the right domain

I am about to spend one week of my holidays with transfering our (about
20 clients) NT4 domain to a AD DC one.

We are running a samba NT4 PDC on debian buster which is offering dns
(bind9) and dhcp (isc-dhcpd), too.

I have an older server where I can play with an AD DC setup.

If I see I won't make it in a week, I would like to be able to return as
smooth as possible to the present state.

Our current internal domain is:


Frankly speaking I am already lost, if I should choose the right AD DC

[ ] addc.intra.our.tld

and use the exsisting bind as a forwarder for the new bind on the AD DC
or better use:

[ ] addc.our.tld

... and one second question (sorry):

What about the dhpcd?

At present we use fixed MAC:IP:Name matches and the DHCP writes
corresponding DNS records into bind. I am afraid we can't use such setup
anymore, too, can we?
