I'm using Mac and I want the best quality available when using AAC @320 kbps.

Should I use XLD's True VBR or iTunes' VBR?

320 kbit/s is CBR, not VBR.

So, which do you want - 320 kbit/s or VBR?

AAC is not MP3.
AAC can go higher than 320 kbps and Apple encoder has 320-350 kbps VBR setting.

There is no point to go higher than 256 kbps VBR for AAC. It's transparent.
