Question BWA -N options

I am using BWA tool to find alignment of reads:

Now, I use the command:

./bwa aln -n 2 -k 41 DB.fa SRR493081_1.fastq > aln_sa.sai

However, there is another option in bwa i.e.

-N : Disable iterative search. All hits with no more than maxDiff
differences will be found. This mode is much slower than the default.

Should I use it means, is it will give more alignment without using it
(or more accuracy) ?
