Possibly, depending on year, Marzocchi lost a lot of their reputation a few years a go when they shifted production from Italy to the Far East, and it's only just recovering now, a lot of the they forks made in the late 2000's had lots of QC issues, although that behind them now.
The DJ is one of their lower end forks, meant for the freeride market, and it is very heavy; over the Suntour, it will be a lot easier to get service parts for it / get it serviced.
What sort of riding you do would make a difference to it being worth it, lots of jumping, then yes (year / condition dependant), if your XCT's are in good condition, and you don't jump, then possibly not, although if you plan on getting a better fork in the future, the Marzozzchi's should have a better re-sale value than the XCT's
