Searching SharePoint 2013 list vs searching Active Directory

I've got to programmatically update a SharePoint 2013 list with entries from specific Active Directory OUs. So the question is, which lookup method would be faster: read an item in the list and look for it in AD, or read a user entry from AD and look for it in the list?
