Does anyone out there have any tips or comparisons between the two? Preferences? I'm trying to decide which would be a more efficient way to do drum sound design and while layering samples/synths is usually my default, I was wondering if the drum synth would eliminate layering as a technique altogether.

What do you think?

Depends on what you're going for but the drums I sample are acoustic and have already been put through the production ringer so I can't see them ever being replaced with just a drum synth. I usually need to layer synth and sampled drums to get what I'm going for.

"┬┐por que no los dos?" indeed.

Synthesized low end mixed with acoustic sampled crunchy mid/top is great.

Drum synth can do a lot for you depending on what you want your final result to be. For doofy psy kicks I like to cook it up a little with a bit of overdrive and inserted reverb (room) then shaped with a transient designer. I prefer this method as it allows for a lot of kick variation across tracks played in a set.
