Surface to Surface Contact, Mid-Surface Mesh

What would be the ideal way to mesh a bonded joint between two structural components using mid surfaces? (ANSYS WB 2014)

1. A gap with MPC elements and pinball radius (as shown) or

2. No gap and connected structural components

I believe the latter will increase mass and rigidity because of the mid surface mesh.

Thank you!
