I am using SP2010.

I have a vs workflow and I create a task with some body and title. I assign the task to a sharepoint group. For example SPGroupA. Inside this Sharepoint group I have added a AD group. For example ADGroupA. In AD I have 2 user accounts in user group ADGroupA. Do these 2 users receive an email because the task is assigned to them?

Or only the users which are directly inside the SPGroupA?

All users in your SPGroupA will receive the task notification mail no matter if they are assigned to that group directly or via a sub (or AD) group.
