NT4-style domains only work on SMBv1 and the protocols that allow SMBv1 
were turned off at 4.11.0, the defaults were raised to SMBv1 (hence why 
you couldn't see them in smb.conf).

The main parameters that allow SMBv1 were deprecated in 4.13.0 and 
extensive work is ongoing to remove SMBv1, this may come to fruition as 
early as 4.15.0. Bearing this in mind, can I urge you to upgrade, better 
now than being forced to.
