That's actually grammatically correct.

Both ARE correct IF (and I can't stress this enough) they are used in the proper situation. Since there is only one (thank god) Darius it has to be Darius's. Darius' makes zero sense.

Saying you can use either is lazy at worst, and ignorant at best.
Be careful here. Darius' implies that there are two or more Dariu, or some singular form of Darius, which is nonsense. If there were two people named Darius and you wanted to refer to them both at once, they would be "the Dariuses" (alt. "the Darii"). However, this comes up so rarely in common parlance that it sounds strange.

Let us remember Office Space:

"I got a meeting with the Bobs in a couple of minutes."

well if we're going by Latin rules, the possessive of darius would be darii, as would the plural, while the possessive plural would be dariorum or darium if you're being poetic. Ironically, if Darius was a 4th declension noun, its plural would be Dariu, which is the opposite of what you said. Oh and the possessive would be Darius for singular and Dariuum for plural.

I had a meeting with the Bobii once, but everyone kept thinking I just met someone named Bobby. How wrong they were.

Here is what my text book says, "When a singular noun ends with an s or a z sound you may form the possessive by adding just an apostrophe. When the singular noun is a one-syllable word, however, you usally add both an apostrophe and an s to form the possessive."
Examples:
San Carlos' government (or) San Carlos's government (two-syllable word)
Ross's essay (one-syllable word)
The class's field trip (one-syllable word)

According to TheOatmeal

Both are okay!
Since it is a possessive name ending in 's'
