If they are local accounts, no. If they are domain accounts, absolutely.  A new domain has new SIDs so even if the user names match, they won't be recognized.

If you use Active Directory Migration Tool to move the servers and make sure you perform  Security translation during the migration you will be fine.  If you are not sure what you want to re-ACL just select all and you will be fine.

the AD migration tool will work even if I moved already the user to the new domain?

That was the correct order.  Move the users first, then the servers.  Did you use the AD migration tool to move the users?

Very good.  I assume you preserved security and so forth when you migrated the users.
