If the attacker knows for sure that the (character space size) ^ (password length) is greater than 2 ^ (AES key length), then, yes, it's a better idea for the attacker to brute-force the AES key. Given such an assumption of the attacker's knowledge, it's a mathematical fact that the search size for the AES key will be smaller. Such an assumption of attacker ...
