Go with 4.9.    Or, possibly waith until May and go with 4.10.
They will be supported for bug and security fixes for quite a while 
and by the time you need to move to 5.xxx then you will have gained 
enough experience in the FreeBSD world to feel comfortable moving
to the 5.xxx line - which by then, should also be ready for your servers.
