By default Ubuntu server is a no frills server operating system, you don't even get a graphical user interface (gui), it is all command line (cli) think command prompt (dos) in windows. You can install the gui along with all the other bits of software you want, be it a file server, web server samba server or a mail server you want.


In regards to Zentyal server I believe they use Ubuntu server as there base OS, but then they add the software programs that you need and set it all up so that it will work with a windows network active directory (AD).  


You could do the same yourself with Ubuntu server, adding the software components that you want but you will need to have a good knowledge of both Windows and Linux to do so. Zentyal just offer you this out of the box which they will charge you for.  As they say in there literature, it is the linux version of the Windows Small business server
