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.
