Domain Migration

I am faced with a problem, and want to see what everyone thinks. Currently we have our NetBIOS name for our domain as “COMPANY” and the AD Name for it “companycom”. In doing our migration I want migrate to “company.rootcompany.local” as the AD Name. The problem being is that I cannot have two NetBIOS domain names the same. Since they both would be COMPANY. Is there another solution other then making the second domain NetBIOS be like “COMPANY1” or something?
