Like anything else associated with the business transfer, it's subject
to whatever agreement they have.

Does Joe sell his van with "SomeBusiness" painted on the side? If it's
listed as an asset of the business, and the deed of sale refers to
that list, then it goes with it. If it's listed as a separate item,
then it's sold separately.

Also you don't "own" domains, you merely rent their registration to
you for a period. If you claim to sell something that you don't
actually own, then that clause of the contract may become invalid. You
need to check the wording carefully here - sell all your rights to
that registration, don't claim to be selling the actual domain.
