It should be fine either way. For that matter, you don't even need to carb it at all. "Still," or uncarbonated, cider is one way of serving it. It's really a matter of taste.

I keg my cider. No problems. Even better if you want a sweet, carbonated cider. You can kill the yeast, back-sweeten and force carbonate.
