Probably whichever is fastest and compresses the most.

I was setting up a VNC server specifically to connect with my iPad, and noticed something unusual about the color format.

If I use iSSH's built-in X11 server, then xdpyinfo reports that the iSSH X11 server is using 24 bpp in bgr order.  However, when I use iSSH to connect to Xvnc, the VNC server reports that the iSSH VNC client is using 32 bpp in rgb order.  This makes me wonder if the VNC server built into iSSH is doing translation from the 32-bit rgb that it requests from the VNC server to the 24-bit bgr that it displays.

My question is, though, what's the best pixel format for me to use on my VNC server?
