Word count to the nearest zero or actual amount?

I tend to round it to the nearest zero, but wouldn't the publisher or agent be more thrilled if they knew exactly how many words to expect to find in the manuscript?

I have been told go to the nearest zero and then I'm told by someone else give them the correct amount of words.

Which should I do - round it to the nearest zero or give them the correct amount? The reason why is my manuscript For the Love of Abdullah, is rounded to the nearest zero which is actually a lower count than it actually is by fifty or sixty words and I want to make sure that they know how many words is in the manuscript.
