NIC Teaming on Hyper V Host

I have 2 physical nics, each with 4 ports.

I was going to use 2 ports on each adapter for my NIC Team. Since this Server ONLY does Hyper V Hosting, should i leave it as Switch Independent and Dynamic Balancing, or should i actually use the Hyper V Port balancing method? Some Technet articles seem to point out dynamic is still better in general, but i am not sure if that applies for exclusive hosting of virtual machines.

Server 16 is that matters. Thanks.

Dynamic is better in almost all cases. But it didn't exist in 2012 and was new in 2012 R2. So some older documentation and blogs still refer to hyper-v port as the best option. So go dynamic unless you *really* have a reason not to.
