Always AD is preferred for all security reasons.

if you have any out of domain users, then for custom directory.

AD -Security Group or AD- Distribution List

The basic difference between Security groups and distribution group is

Security groups can be used to assign security rights on resources inside your Windows 2003 Active Directory network. By using a security group, we can collect a group of user accounts in a department and assign them access to a shared folder. We cannot use distribution groups for this purpose and a security group has all the capabilities of a distribution group.

A distribution group can be used for sending emails to a group of users. We cannot use distribution group for assigning security permissions. A user’s membership in many security groups could result in slow logon performance. Therefore distribution groups should be used wherever possible.

Security groups can do the same things that a distribution group can do with the added advantage that they can also be used to assign permissions to files or shares whereas distribution groups cannot.

More basic differences are

The difference between a security-enabled group and a non-security enabled group is that a security enabled group will be present in the kerberos cert and authentication tokens for a user when they logon. This is used for the Windows NT security model.

Hope this helps.

So choose accordinlgy as per your requirement.

if you want to just send emails - use distribution list.

if you want to send emails and also apply some security rules then go for - AD security grp
