Neither. You use the Luminosity Distance. $$M = m -5\log D_L + 5$$ This assumes bolometric magnitudes. If you are trying to estimate it in some photometric band then you must also calculate and apply a K-correction that will depend upon the intrinsic spectrum of the source. For $z=11.09$ this cosmology calculator gives a model-dependent luminosity-distance ...
