I don't think this will cause confusion, it is an explanation of one the 
samba-tool provision options and is half way down the page. I think that 
some people are totally missing that the page is on how to set up an AD 
DC server and think that they can set up a member server in the same 
way. Putting something into the explanation about 'server-role' to tell 
people that you cannot provision a member server and pointing them to 
the member server howto, is in my opinion, not out of place.
