Samba has three levels of support for each minor version, spread over 18 

Fully supported for first six months

Maintenance fixes for the next six months

Security fixes only for the last six months

4.9.x is in maintenance mode at the moment, but 4.11.0 is fairly 
imminent and, when it is released, 4.9.x will drop into security fixes 
only (4.8.x will go EOL at this time)

That is the reason to upgrade to the highest version possible, plus you 
will get numerous fixes that have been added to 4.10.x
