Hey, I say 3 is better than 1.

I don't think the map "knows" where the 3 are beforehand, so you don't have to explore the whole world to "find" them. Instead it's more like
1. Spawn chunk
2. Check: are there 3 strongholds in the world?
If no: 0.01% to make one.
If yes: 0% to make one.
I don't know this for sure, but it makes more sense.
