D500 & SB-5000 recommended settings for Indoor Holiday gatherings

I would appreciate any guidance on recommended/ ideal settings for using D500 & SB-5000 combination for shooting indoor holiday gatherings. In particular TTL standard vs TTL BL , recommended camera modes Manual , Aperture priority , Exposure compensation (someone said Them Hogan suggested using -1.7 to -2.0 EV on Flash ),  Metering settings, etc.     My overall problem shooting with D500/SB-5000 combo is a great deal of under & overexposures.  I can not seem to get consistent results. Frankly I have much better success rates (ie constant results) shooting D500 with SB-500 (SB-5000 little brother) . Any guidance much appreciated. Thank you in advance!!
