I've had no problems printing to AD connected print servers with Linux 
in a decade.  Either with the Linux box (usually Fedora, but Ubuntu as 
well) as part of the AD domain or not part of the domain.

Generally all the printer issues with Windows print servers is the print 
spool getting jacked up and having to be restarted.  It's better in 
Server 2016, but still crap IMHO.
