Confusion about LDAP and Samba as PDC

This is a really newbie question but I want to know if I install an ubuntu server as a domain controller with Samba as PDC so my users can authenticate to the domain through to Samba why do I need Ldap authentication? it isn't enough with Samba?
In which cases do you use Samba? and when do you use Ldap? and when do you use both? I'm confused, I hope you guys can help me.
