It’s always best to do as many operations as possible with a given setup.
While the part is chucked in the lathe is the best time to drill it, like “interprim” said, using a drill in a Jacobs chuck, mounted in the tailstock
Unless the part had to be supported by both the chuck and the live center in the tailstock at the same time.
In the later case, Rich hit it. Drill, then turn.
