[Samba] Domain Member Server or Mounted Shares?

Now that I have my Samba PDC up and running, I will soon be building a 
NAS for network file storage, backups and running virtual machines and 
tests. I need to make some shares on this machine that network users can 
access for file storage.

I can either design it to be a Samba Domain Member and set up shares 
that would be authenticated via the PDC or I could simply mount the 
shares to the PDC via CIFS and let the users access them locally through 
the PDC.

Does anyone have any advice on how to handle this?
