Every member in the band is responsible of keeping time. But if your drummer slows down, you really can't keep the original tempo. If anybody else slows down, it's not that bad, as long as the drums...

As vayne92 said, it's all about the sound you are after. If the riff isn't too fast, you could try playing it both ways. Play it the way that sounds/feels better.
