Sync'ing an audio tape multitrack and Reaper

I'm setting up a system where I sync an MTR to a DAW. As far as I could read from this thread

post #5, in this case Reaper should be the SMPTE timecode master. Is it video/post use specific to have the tape machine as the TC master? Or is this a different view on chosing sync TC master? To me it seems that slaving the DAW would indeed introduce jitter, as the post referenced above says, but I'm just starting experimenting with this.
