Default which takes precedence?

I have a machine running SMP whose grub entry is

******* kernel /vmlinuz-2.6.9-55.ELsmp ro root=/dev/VolGroup00/LogVol00 rhgb quiet 3

(and uname -a: Linux 8mile 2.6.9-55.ELsmp #1 SMP) BUT*** Runlevel N 5

I used to set runlevel by making id 3 in /etc/inittab:

********** id:3:initdefault:

Management said not to use inittab but rather grub.conf.* Explains before why even when
id in inittab was 5, the runlevel would be 3.

But now, in grub.conf there is the 3 (as above) at the end of the kernel line (5 in inittab) and
it is coming up in level 5 after reboot.* So which has precedence, inittab or grub.conf and
why is it coming up 5?
