Regardless.... 1/60 or 1/125 is the way to go.
Unless isolated cases, ambient light may actually makes you portraiture looks better.

If you're using radio trigger for your strobes, even at 1/250, you might still encounter a slight blackout because there is a slight delay for radio trigger. If that does happen, then maybe you can try going slower to 1/200. Otherwise, 1/250 should be fine.
Wow! The 2 giants on discussion! Can I just ask if I 1 2 take some small product shots, and I use a light tent with lights on the sides, do I still stick to 1/60? By the way....is there a reason why it's 1/60?
This will not happen on D50 and D70/D70s because the shutter above 1/250 is electronic, so you won't get a blackout portion but will experience an underexposure if the flash duration is longer than the shutter speed itself.
