Yes, but debian wil be the first. 

If you use the package on Ubuntu, try to keep you server as clean as possible.
The packages work fine, but you install to much, you might get depend problems 
due to the packages needed for samba, like tevent ldb tdb etc.. 
I did not back track all other packages with dependecies to the one samba uses for ubuntu.
