Why on earth would you want netbios on an AD DC ????

Active Directory was created to replace netbios. Netbios relies on SMBv1 
and this is in the process of being removed, so I would think that 
rather than porting the V3 netbios code to V4, it is more likely that, 
ultimately, the netbios code will be removed from V3.
