It depends. Here is what the man page says:

        Policies  that  are
         specific to the current release of Solaris or that  con-
         tain  privileges  should  use solaris. Policies that use
         UIDs only or  that  are  not  specific  to  the  current
         Solaris release should use suser.

So, if all you are going to do is assign executables that are going to run as uid=0, then suser is appropriate. If
you plan and using privileges, then you should use solaris.
