Yes, I just installed required packages prior to join a DC. Just like
preparing a join to any other Samba DC. Since there's already two
Windows DC's running, a new provision doesn't needed.

No. I masked the actual domain name.

Windows sysadmin (who actually provisioned the Windows DC's) said that
they changed the auto-assigned NETBIOS name, from "DOMAIN0" to
"DOMAIN" after provision. I suspect that this change is recognized by
Samba during join but not elaborated properly.

On my test setup, I used VM image of actual Windows DC and I was getting
same error during join. I removed AD setup on Windows DC and then
provisioned a new DC from scratch on my test setup. After this, Samba
was able to join domain properly. I can't to a new installation on
production environment.
