I am using Ghost from Symantec Ghost Console on Windows Server 2003. Client machine I want to get an image from is an XP.

Do I need to remove this pc from the domain? How would I clone this pc?

You need to do what is called and SID change and run a sysdiff on the hardware.  This will allow the machine to join without a duplicate ID.

You need to run a sysdiff (for new hardware) and sysprep to change the unique ID of the machine.  It is called the SID.
