  Both versions are correct, and equivalent.

  Could you just say what this hyphenation is in your case?  It's
possible some typographers would forbid hyphenation at "ail-le" because
the 'e' is mute (in fact, I'm sure they do), so you would only get
mé-daille.  That is, provided \lefthyphenmin is at most 2, of course.
