Configuring an Exchange 2003 front-end server as a master in a routing group.

I have 2 Exchange 2003 front-end servers and 6 Exchange 2003 back-end servers.  One of the back-end server was the first server in the site.  By default, it is a master for the only one routing group that I have.  I need to know if it is better to have one of the front-end server be the master.

As I understand it, all back-end member servers contact the master server for routing purposes.  Would it not be more efficient to have the front-end be the master server, since it handles outbound email flow?

It isn't something I have ever done. Remember it isn't just outbound routing, but internal routing as well.
