comment What's the best NAS for home usage with Macs?
ZFS may be an excellent file system, but your recommendations have no relation to the criteria specified in the question. Bulletproof file server with acceptable Samba implementation is not a great turn-key solution for someone wanting the utmost in Mac compatibility.
