[Samba] future of non-AD samba?

We plan to upgrade servers, and wonder which configuration is
future-proof. Must we switch to AD, or will a new Standalone Server also
continue to serve Windows 10 clients?
Several messages suggest that new Windows sometimes cannot access old Samba.
What exactly is the cause? Is it Standalone Server versus Domain, is it
old-style PDC versus AD, or is it SMB protocol version 1 versus 2 or 3?
Btw. I'm currently running Samba 4 as PDC and Samba 3.6 as standalone
server, both are accessed from Linux, Win7, and Win-1709 (upgraded from
older versions). The only problem so far has been that new Ubuntu
defaults to disabled SMB1.
