The problem with long term support, is just that, it is long term
support for all the packages it comes with originally. 
Samba is a fast moving target and things get added/updated all the
time, but if you are stuck with an earlier version of Samba, you do not
get them.

In my opinion, the best way forward at the moment, use debian or Devuan
with Louis Van Belle's repo.
