Default Make a choice - 30 or 1?

So I'm hammering out a bodybuilder profile, and I see this lifter does almost 30 sets per day on major bodyparts. He uses a pretty standard high volume approach.

So this got me to thinkin'...if I had to choose between doing one high intensity set per bodypart (set to failure, and all the post-failure trimmings I could handle)...or grinding out 30 sets per bodypart, which would I choose?

So my question to you is...if you have to choose, which workout would you do for muscle building...

A) One ball-busting HIT set per bodypart, with whatever high intensity tricks you want to add to that set (rest-pause, slow negatives, drop sets, whatever)

B) 30 grind 'em out mindless volume sets of moderate intensity.
