I do not think either tool will benchmark samba file serving
performance but the actual goal of what a  samba mark would benchmark
is unclear. I guess one could create a benchmark that could measure
the throughput of a single folder on a single samba share but this may
or may not be a good guide to performance on the samba server. I mean
permissions, number of files in a folder, file sizes, acls, and file
system and storage choices can play a big part in performance and any
or all of these may be different from folder to folder on a samba
