You cannot have one without the other, a Unix computer without Samba is 
just that, a Unix machine. Add Samba and you can join an AD domain, the 
letters 'S', 'M' and 'B' in Samba are there for a reason.

Even if there are other things on the computer, they can probably be 
integrated with AD.

Yes, using that means it can only be a standalone server and not part of 
a domain.
