The 4.0.0 release notes 
(https://www.samba.org/samba/history/samba-4.0.0.html) said:

"Domain member support in the 'samba' binary is in its infancy, and is 
not comparable to the support found in winbindd.  As such, do not use 
the 'samba' binary (provided for the AD server) on a member server."

I can't say if it's still 100% correct in 4.1, but I haven't heard 
anything different yet.

And at least joining on the old way works like in the past. So I think 
this is still the preferred way.
