Distributor Question 350 SBC

I recently dropped my 350 back in a few days ago. While I had the engine out, I replaced the timing chain and gears and all the gaskets and some other parts. I am ready to install the distributor and I was told by someone that when I drop it in, the rotor should be pointing at the #6 cylinder. I have always installed it by pointing it to the #1 and making sure the timing mark was on 0. The person told me to point it to #6 when he found out I replaced the timing gears and chain. Am I missing something here? Or is this correct?
