You have to perform a cutover office 365 migration and if you want single sign-on feature then you have to implement a ADFS which will need a separate server.

Active Directory Federation Services Servers: (ADFS)

When you set up single sign-on, it enables users to access both the on-premises and cloud-based organizations with a single user name and password.

Active Directory Synchronization Server:(DirSync)

Active Directory synchronization server to synchronize mail-enabled Active Directory objects to the Office 365 tenant organization to support a unified global address list (GAL) between your on-premises Exchange and Exchange Online organizations.
