Bonded T1s vs load-balanced T1s

We are currently on business DSL for internet, but are looking at getting 3 mbps T1 service.  One of the ISPs we are looking at quotes us a 3 mbps bonded T1.  When I asked for a quote on the same service from another ISP, they said that they do not actually bond the T!s, but they load-balance them in the router.

Can someone please explain to me what the difference between these two configurations would be for us?  The bonded ISP led to me to believe that the load-balanced configuration would reduce the overall throughput of our connection, but I'm not sure if this would be true or not, or why this would be the case.
