It depends. For example:
Bios is usually one or the other (usually just the graphics
Grub I think is one or the other, not both.
The kernel can do both (or multiple console outputs), just tell
it both in the console= line, see the serial-console howto.
Unless I need the serial port for something else, I generally
have the kernel send console messages to both, and have a getty
run on ttyS0. If I don't need the serial console I can ignore
it. When I do need it, it is already set up.
