What type of group objects will be synced to Azure Active Directory Domain Services?

Hi all, I hope I'm not asking an already answered question. At least my research found no answer to this.

I'm currently looking int Azure AD Domain Services and found this documentation very useful but it also left me with one remaining question:
Are Office 365 groups and distribution lists also synced to Azure AD DS domains?

I would need their information available via an LDAPS connection, which Azure AD DS can provide.

Hi,

The following link might be helpful:

How objects and credentials are synchronized in an Azure AD Domain Services managed domain
https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/azure/active-directory-domain-services/synchronization

You can check what isn't synchronized to Azure Active Directory Domain Services (Azure ADDS) over here:

What isn't synchronized to Azure AD DS

Hi Leon and thanks for your answer.
Unfortunately I wouldn't say that this answers my question however.
Your referenced chapter says

The following objects or attributes aren't synchronized from an on-premises AD DS environment to Azure AD or Azure AD DS

I'm asking of what exactly is synchronited from Azure AD to Azure AD DS. It might be, that this isn't actual a problem. In this case I would be happy if someone, who already set this up, could confirm that Office 365 groups and Exchange Online distribution lists are synced to Azure AD DS.

As far as I know Office 365 groups and Exchange distribution lists are synchronised to Azure ADDS.
Office 365 uses Azure Active Directory (Azure AD) to manage user identities behind the scenes, by default all users and groups from an Azure AD directory are synchronized to an Azure AD DS managed domain.
