I do not use Windows DC's, so cannot comment on them, but Samba AD is 
supposed to emulate Windows AD, so they both should work similarly.

That link primarily talks about 'islanding', something that has never 
really affected Samba AD and, from my experience, Samba AD works best 
when you use the DC's ipaddress for the DC's nameserver.
