In second case you get better performance, but lose some data
protection. It's still raidz1 and you can't guarantee functionality in
all cases of two drives failing. If two drives fail in the same vdev,
your entire pool will be gone. Granted, it's better than single-vdev
raidz1, but it's *not* as good as raidz2.
