I'm presuming you still on Comet16 and maybe Win XP workstations.

I'd push, incrementally, the Comet installations on the 2003 Servers up as far as possible. The compatibility chart suggests you can go all the way to Comet 2018. I remember getting past Comet 2005 as a biggie. From there, the next stop might be 2012 or 2013, where Comet32 comes into play. Another BIGGIE!

Don't know if XP is supported on Server 2019. Here's a post from Microsoft on Server 2016 and XP.
I agree with Dave that windows XP could work in the windows server 2016 domain, but we could guarantee that there is no any issue. For example, as far as I know, windows XP system on the network may pull the server down to SMB version 1.0. This is a major security problem as SMB is the vector which allowed WannaCry to propagate across networks.
And please note: Microsoft has ended up the support for Windows XP, we suggest you upgrade the operating system for better user experience.
Best regards,
