Default Few questions from newbie

First of all I'd like to say Hello to everybody. I'm new in OpenBSD so please bear with me. I've used debian so far and I wonder to change system to openbsd because of pf and carp.
I Have Dell R900 Server and I've installed vmware esxi 5.5 on it. I'd like to install OpenBSD as pppoe server (accel-pppd) and traffic sharper. But i've few doubts. When I used OpenBSD lastely it was about 10 years ago and this wasn't effective system, but very secured. Some people told me, that OpenBSD still has some imprtant defects, like pf doesn't work with multi procesors machine, it binds to one procesor and uses only it (my machine has 4 Xeons, 16 cores), and that not every good lan cards works like a charm :/
My target is to provide pppoe-server to 5000 users (now about 2k) with traffic conntrol and firewal/masquerade.
Can anybody tell me it is true about pf with multicore and lan cards? Does OpenBSD will be best choice for pppoe-server?
