We have a Mac server (10.7) with a 200TB disk array. We're trying to decide between HFS+ and the unsupported ZFS. Which should we use, why, and is there another choice that we haven't considered?

If I read this correctly, there is no practical limit the the size of filesystem you can create with HFS Plus. ZFS is unsupported, so unless you're using this for a throwaway scratchpad, your only choice is HFS plus.
