apache+mod_ssl is my preference, but that's really just me.  Either
will serve you well.  Functionality and configuration file sysntax is
slightly different between the two but that's mostly a matter of
individual preference rather than any organic difference.  One thing
that mod_ssl supplies is the EAPI, which enables a number of other
extensions to apache, such as the ability to define and use variables
within the apache configuration files.

You might be interested to know that mod_ssl is a standard part of
Apache 2.x
