I don't understand the question. Are you asking if you can backup active directory on a Server 2000 machine using ntbackup.exe?
If so, the answer is yes. You take a system state backup of the domain controller using ntbackup.exe.

Using NTBackup you can backup the system state of a server. On a domain controller, the system state contains:

Active Directory Database (including DNS)
SYSVOL
System Files
Registry
IIS Metabase
COM+ Class Registration Database
Certificate Services DB (if installed)

You have to backup the entire system state in one go, and restore it all in one go.

However the system state does not backup the entire system partition, only the protected system files (most of the contents of C:\windows).
