Black & White Film

Hi Rob!  Here's the question...
The DP is shooting Kodak XX B&W, 200 ASA, ambient light.
Kodak told him that it was OK to underexpose by a stop, but
that the blacks might milk out.  I can handle that in telecine, but I'm
concerned about grain and overall mush.  The DP says
that underexposed B&W actually has less grain, unlike underexposed color
film.  Any idea what I'm going to end up with if he underexposes by one stop?
Should he shoot a higher ASA color stock and take it to B&W in telecine?
 Please answer ASAP.  Thanks, Rose
Thanks, Rose
