I don't know which command is better, but the smbmount command is in the 
smbfs package in Ubuntu.
In any Debian based distro you can use apt-file to search which package 
contains a file.

Install it: apt-get install apt-file
Index it: apt-file update
And search: apt-file search smbmount

smbfs: usr/bin/smbmount
