Default Top crop and then pitch, or top crop directly into wort?

I'm going to be doing a dunkelweizen pretty soon and figured I might as well use the yeast to brew a weizenbock too. As always I'm going with 3068.

Do you think I should collect the blowoff in a separate container for a couple days, then brew the weizenbock and pitch? Or should I just brew the weizenbock say two days after the dunkelweizen and rig it so the blowoff falls right into the bock?

If I did the second method, I would probably allow the blowoff to carry over until the bock's krausen started to take off. Then I'd split the connection and they'd be fermenting on their own.

I just don't want to underpitch the weizenbock. I'm not sure if that's as much of a concern when you're talking about adding VERY actively fermenting wort, but it's probably going to have an OG around 1.085.
