16GB is low for a hypervisor by todays, standards, as the Host ESXi server will need 4GB, so that will leave 12GB for your VMs.

vCenter Appliance is quite large at 2vCPU and 8GB RAM., So one of your hosts, is going to have approx 4GB left for a DC.

So, I think you've got ample for a lab.

Thanks for the replay.
The DC doesn't contains user or computers or other high cpu services, only few dns records for esxi and vcenter, In the other two esxi host i put the "real" ms domain for study purposes. It technically possible to install Microsoft ISCSI target Server on same server that do DC?
I want to set up a SAN for the other 2 esxi server.

Yes, all do-able, and you could reduce the memory a but in your DC.
