Shall I use the builtin "Users" instead of "Domain Users" to assign permission to resources?

I was told to use a "Domain Local" type rather than "Global" type for domain access control. Since the built-in "Users" account is a Domain Local type while "Domain Users" a Global, shall I use the built-in "Users" instead of the "Domain Users" for access control in the local domain?

You were told wrong, although in single domain forest it really does not matter.
You nest groups in Active Directory by A-G-U-DL-P rule.

You put A-account in G-global group, which can be put in U-universal group in multiple domain environment, which can be put in DL - domain local group to which you assign P - permissions.

In single domain forest I would use A-G-P.

Thank you Toni.
But we have another two two-way-trusted domains in respective separate forest. (Each domain is in a different forest.) Each domain could share its resources.
In that case, would you consider ours a single domain?

You have three single domain forests?

Go for A-G-DL-P strategy then, you do not need to use Universal groups, yet.
