They are saved just as they were before, in the SAM of the controllers. atstake.com/products/lc/requirements.html  and many others are able to dump these still, Admin priviledge is still needed. I've tested, it works. The .DIT files do contain info on the username and such... read here:

What AD brings to the table as far as AUTH that is better than it used to be, is it's much harder to sniff the wire for password hashes. Kerberose is slightly better, however it's still possible to BF. Ntsecurity.nu has some resources about this. So there are a few ways to get the pass's still, the method hasn't changed much.
