Take note that on the link I provided there is the statement that it is not
supported (on Red Hat) with the role of AD DC.
I don't know if it is more a limitation for support effort by Red Hat or at
all, also because here you can find a note for Ubuntu where it states it
does support that role on Samba4:

So if you are "forced" to use CentOS you can try to inter-mix the
information provided by the two links and see if it works.
