It can but there is a caveat

http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/jj679892.aspx

Must be the root domain controller in a domain that has no trusts at the root of the forest. This condition is temporarily allowed for migrations, but if persistent, the system will be forced to restart.

Thanks
