because you are not trying to promote 2003 sbs as a DC you certainly can join it to a 2000 sbs domain.

"This computer must be configured as a domain controller. It will be shut down in 30 minutes. To prevent this computer from shutting down, run Setup on the disk that you used to install the operating system to configure the computer as a domain controller."
