Azure AD Connect netbios name

I've an environment contain NetBIOS name with "." example as netbios name
And Azure AD Connect (On-Premise) doesn't support Netbios names with ".", is there other work around, so that i can sync users to Azure Portal.

Using on-premises forests or domains by using "dotted" (name contains a period ".") NetBIOS names isn't supported.
