Depth of field question

How much variations in depth of field can different glass designs produce among lenses of identical focal length and settings? In other words, will a modern Nikkor 200mm f/2 and an ancient Nikkor 200mm f/4 AIS, both set at f/5.6 and focused at 3 meters have the exact same amount of depth of field?
