You cannot. SBS Servers, by design, each have to be the root of their respective domains. They cannot establish trusts between each other. If you connect them together, after a few days, two of them will start randomly re-booting.

squinn100 is correct.  There is no legal way to connect multiple SBS servers together.  Any successful attempt would be a violation of the SBS licensing agreement and we cannot help with that.  

The one option you have is to buy THREE copies of the SBS transition pack and migrate away from SBS.  The transition pack removes the limitations and allows you to create trusts.

What if i institute a fourth standard server and have them comunicate with that server only. So that the three SBS servers will only see the standard server and won't have to talk to any other sbs server?

That's fine - but you still can't create a trust between them.  SBS disables trusts.
