The recommendation is to use the dedicated HA1 port for HA1 (for deviced that have a dedicated HA1 port). For smaller firewalls a dedicated port is still recommended but depending on your port requirements the might be no dataplane port left for HA1.
In any case I always use the mgmt port also for HA1 - at least as HA1 backup.
