My guess is it doesn't matter, so long as you set the WB to match that K.  The T3 isn't able to directly set the WB as a K value, but the K value for the different presets is displayed when that preset is selected.  Or you can use the Custom WB feature (p. 115-116 of the instruction manual).

Best solution is to shoot RAW and correct the WB in post-processing using Digital Photo Professional (included with your T3) or other photosoftware.

I think they should work out well
