It depends on what you want. Serving profile, GPO, is ok in Samba4.
Serving more complicated things needs a samba3 for it.
Here we run a lot of thing in s4, but for instance I had to move back
the accounting back to S3 as it seems to behave better with all the
quirks of this software. Also printing is not working so s3 is needed.
I would say that nowdays with virtualization (xen, virtualbox, qemu,
vserver, kvm) it's not a big deal to have 2 servers, if you have a huge
constraint it's also possible to have 1 server with both s3 and s4 on it
(I used to have it but I don't recommand it but it worked).
