Use cifs if possible (that is, if you are running any 2.4 or 2.6 kernel
that was released in the last year or two, *and* you aren't talking to
win98 or earlier).
cifs is the next generation smbfs, and is at this point superior in just
about every way (IMNSHO). Of course, YMMV.
For example: smbfs needs to be remounted if there is even the slightest
hiccup in your networking -- and with cifs I am able to suspend with
files open on a SMB share, and when I resume, I don't even need to
re-open the file!
It seems that smbfs is not being actively maintained other than security
bugfixes. I might be wrong on this, but I don't think so.
