SBS2008 environment adding 2016 Server as a DC with different domain, is it possible?

Last Modified: 2017-12-19
Allot of information around adding an additional DC in an SBS environment. I believe it references the additional DC being in the same domain which causes problems with FSMO. My question is it possible to add a 2016 Server as a DC with a separate (it's own) domain. Meaning it would be a two domain environment rather than SBS with a redundant DC.
