were you still going to use 2003 dc?
you don't need to move exchange as long as it is not a domain controller
you don;t need to do anything as long as you are using the same domain

My suggestion
Migrate the domain and forest to 2016 DC,
transfer FSMO role
Patrick BogersDatacenter platform engineer LindowsCommented:
You cannot migrate a 2003 DC to 2016 because this os is no longer supported.
You can migrate the domain to 2008 first, from there you can migrate to 2016.
Ajit SinghCommented:
For Server 2016 DC functional level needs to be server 2008 and higher. So first you should migrate from server 2003 to server 2008/2012 then migrate to Server 2016.

As said above, you cannot upgrade from 2003 to 2016 directly, you need to have one stage 2008 in between. For Exchange server, you don't need to do anything, it will be picking up new DC automatically.

Better you hire pro or get MS help for migration. Also, you need to check other application servers, whether they can support 2016 or not. Before you move forward.
