If it's a performance question then the answer depends on which processor you're using. There's unlikely to be a big difference, and you'll only find out which is faster by measuring it. In Saxon there's almost certainly no difference, since a template rule with match="a|b" is essentially compiled into two rules match="a" and match="b" that point to the same template body. It might be fractionally faster to do match="*[@type=('a','b')]" (that's 2.0 syntax) but I doubt it's noticeable.
