You're better off I think googling for this or using Synology's official forums. The concept of a Windows Domain (which is what I think you're talking about) in an Active Directory Domain is a Microsoft Windows Server thing as far as I know. So you'll want to google for "linux domain controller" since Synology is linux. It would not surprise me if this server function is restricted to licensed Windows Servers as this is how MS makes money. On the other hand a quick google does return some interesting stuff, like https://www.turnkeylinux.org/domain-controller (turnkeylinux.org/domain-controller) which supports Docker so could be run inside a Docker container on your Xpenology.

the turnkey dc works fine (I've only used it as a secondary) and as a VM not in docker, but that should not make a difference imho
