Do it both ways. Then you may know which way is best for the situation

Apply the fix to the layout. Test the page at text-size "largest" in IE;
and at +1 and +2 font-scaling in a compliant browser. This will answer

After you've done a hundred or so layouts you may know under exactly
what set of specific circumstances which is best and why. Or, you may
not know that.

Try both of them. Preferably with stress testing (font-scaling). This
will enable you to decide where you should use one or the other in the
specific situation such as the one at hand. Maybe.
I think in general that there are relatively few definitive answers that
will work in every conceivable situation that arises in any given
layout. There is a long and steep learning curve. With knowledge of the
specs, time, experience, and practice, knowing what works when and
where becomes a little easier.
