I'm not really an expert but I'll try and answer. As far as I know any class is fine. You can solo through most of the story stuff but you will have to group up for dungeons and some other things along the way. The game will find you parties for those and it'll be faster if you're a tank or healer class, but there's less pressure going DPS. But since you want to be a dark knight it's probably best to go ahead and get familiar with tanking so you'll probably want to go Gladiator or Marauder to start. I haven't really played any tank stuff aside from leveling up a Marauder way back when becoming a Dragoon required it, so I couldn't really say which would be more useful.
