Should I close a question that is the master of already closed duplicates in favor of a more recent question that has better answers?

Until now I generally closed questions as duplicates only in favor of older questions. But now I notice that some of those questions have better answers than the master question.

So should I revert my decision and make the one with the poorer but older answers the duplicate of the one with the better but more recent answers?

Any reason you're not merging them instead?
