If your question is about the syntax:
phenix.refine model.pdb data.mtz xray_data.labels="IOBS,SIGIOBS"
phenix.refine model.pdb data.mtz xray_data.labels="I(+),SIGI(+"
(sub-string should work).
If your question is about choice anomalous vs non-anomalous data to be
used: I would use anomalous because it is a richer source of
information, you will get anomalous difference map, you can refine
anomalous f'&f'', etc.

R-factors look similar to me. Systematic slight increase may mean you
need to adjust target weights or choose refinement strategy more
tailored to the quality of input data and model.
