SBS was not intended to work with other domains, so what you want to do can be tricky.

I don't like when objects have multiple SID references that would be the case with objects transferred using the Active Directory Migration Tool (ADMT).  And frankly, there can be issues with this tool.  But that may be your best bet.

Otherwise, you could recreate the users in the new/other domain and migrate the profiles over using a tool like the User Profile Wizard.
