using shotgun microphones in X/Y ??

When miking a source using a pair of shotgun microphones in X/Y configuration, does it matter if the port-strips on both microphones are aligned in the same orientation with each other?

My question: if a port-strip is facing upward on one of the shotguns, should the port-strip on the second shotgun also be facing upward? Or should the second shotgun be rotated 90 degrees? Or does it even matter??
