What is the best power mode for redundant power supplies?

Hi, good afternoon.

I recently purchased another ML110 G9 with two redundant power supplies. And I've been digging around inside the BIOS to see if there was anything in the configuration of these power supplies, and I found whatever is on the screenshot.

Which of these modes would be best for the power supplies?

Use Balanced Mode.
Balanced Mode shares the power delivery equally between all installed power supplies.

@Kashyap02 , @Robertomcat  Just one question regarding to this: If using balanced mode the load will be distributed equally or nearly equally over the powersupplies? Is it possible that there will be a difference between the load of the powersupplies? If yes, why? If no, why?
