No, you only use one, which one you use will depend on your OS. Most 
OS's now use systemd, but others such as Devuan still use init scripts, 
so you need to find out what your OS uses.

Also, this isn't really the correct place to ask questions such as this, 
you should be posting to the samba mailing list.
