If the OS being backed up is x86 (32-bit) then use 32-bit.

If the OS being backed up is amd64/x64 (64-bit) then use 64-bit.

If recovering into Hyper-V make sure to use the following setup:
 * 1 vCPU
 * 1GB to 1.5GB of vRAM
 * Legacy NIC for earlier than 2012 OS/SP RE
 * Native NIC for 2012 OS and later with 2012 based RE

in waiting for an answer, I wound up going through the windows builder for the recovery environment.  Don't think it asked which (32 vs. 64 bit) that I wanted.  You know if it will work for all restores?  I'd rather not have to worry about having 2 ISOs and worrying which to use (yes, 32bit is going away, but some older machines still have those OSs).

How do you keep track of whether a machine is 32 or 64? bit?

I've not needed to worry about the 32-bit versus 64-bit question for years now as we've been deploying 64-bit operating systems since 2008 RTM went live and Windows Vista 64-bit had a decent driver set.

You should be okay.

BTW, we test our client's backups once a quarter as part of our services for them.
