Default MAPping Quality v.s. Alignment Score (AS) in SAM format

MAPQ: MAPping Quality. It equals −10 log10 Pr{mapping position is wrong}, rounded to the nearest
integer. A value 255 indicates that the mapping quality is not available.

AS i Alignment score generated by aligner


What are the differences between these two? I am confused about this. If I want to filter the alignments and keep the 'good' alignment, which value should I look into?

Thanks.
