Hi David,
in order to respond to your question an idea of what are your
expectations would is needed.

If by Domain you mean "AD Domain or Kerberos Realm", the answer is no,
they will never coexists.

If by Domain you mean DNS Domain read then FreeIPA can work in the same
domain as AD but only if you do not care for them interacting (at the
kerberos level, no trusts, no SSO).
You can basically have only one association between a DNS domain and a
Realm, and a DNS domain is either going to be associated to the AD
Domain server or to the IPA Domain.

Synchronization, however is a completely unrelated topic, and I can't
give you an answer on that side as I do not understand how it would
relate to the coexistence of FreeIPA and AD in a single DNS domain.
