You need to be domain admin to add users to a server environment and to add such users to the administrators group.

You can do it with a local admin, but that means logging off and starting without the domain. Users might not be happy.  For a server, domain admin works best for all concerned.

Users need to be an admin, either local or Domain, to be able to make others an admin.

A Local admin cannot make a domain account an admin, only Domain admins can do that, but a Domain admin CAN make a local User an admin on a local machine.
