Is one better than the other?

As I am new to sailing and looking for a boat, one major difference I see in some used boats is that some masts are deck-stepped and that some are keel-stepped. Is one way better than the other? One sailor who was trying to sell me his boat said that deckstepped boats are made better, meaning stronger, when masts are deckstepped. His reasoning seemed logical but then again, I''m new. You can just about tell me anything and I wouldn''t know better. Can any of you set me straight on this new sailor''s question???
