Possibly both, but Undead seem more connected to clerics than mages.  It 
was imped as a 'Animate Dead' as a Cleric only spell at FajitaDIKU and 
was rather fun.  This also though required a corpse to animate, and then 
the corpse determined the description of the new undead.

That depends on the alignment of the cleric.  Protection from Good and 
Protection from Evil are certainly opposites.  I see good aligned clerics 
turning undead, while evil ones Summoning them.
