This event can be expected when migrating away from SBS to full servers. Once you transfer the FSMO roles to another DC this event will trigger, followed by event 1001 from SBcore aswell, shutting down the server.
See ME925652 for information about this event.
This event appears to be caused by the fact that SBS 2003 should be the owner of the FSMO roles. 2 weeks after the installation, SBS must hold all the FSMO roles. This requirement is in the Setup and Upgrade Requirement paper. See ME324801 to find out how to view and transfer FSMO roles in Windows Server 2003. Also, check ME234790 to see how to find servers that hold Flexible Single Master Operations (FSMO). You can also use ntdsutil to verify that all the roles are indeed back to the SBS, see ME255504.

From a newsgroup post: "SBS 2003 must be running as a DC. Please run the SBS integrated setup to complete the DCpromo process and finish the SBS integrated setup. If you want a member server, then please use regular Windows 2003 OS instead of SBS".
