The smaller the f-number, the narrower the depth of field. So f/5.6 will give you a greater depth of field than f/2.8. In other words, you'll see more things in focus either side of the focal point at f/5.6 than at f/2.8.

Now, the thing to note about telephoto lenses with focal lengths above 200mm... they naturally provide a narrow depth of field so you don't need them in an f/2.8. Besides these are very expensive going well up to a few thousand dollars. So a telephoto of 300mm at f/4 or 400mm at f/5.6 is fine.

The only benefit that an f/2.8 has is better bokeh and the ability to use in lower light. Don't spend $10,000 buying an f/2.8 telephoto.
