That doesn't make any sense.Depends upon the topology , Layer 2 or Layer 3 ether channels can be configured.By default it is Layer 3 as it is a Layer 3 Switch.That doesn't mean that the Layer 3 ether channel is better than layer2.Even layer 4 load balancing methods can be configured in multilayer Switches.Hope you got it
Even the Ether Channel is layer 2 or layer 3, the Loadbalancing alg can be layer 2 , layer 3 and layer 4.By default the its layer 3 and the link utilization will be 68% for link 0 and 32 % for Link 1.Better configure Layer4 load balancing so that the link utilizatoi can be made almost 50% on each link
