A7 lll v A6600

If I want to go out and get a high success rate of sharply focused birds in flight and animals moving, then which camera will be better for reliably locking onto the subject accurately, quickly, consistently and staying with it?

The A7 lll, or the A6600 with it's real time tracking? I'm thinking of buying either.

I'd quite like a crop sensor to extend the reach of my telephoto lens, but I'm not keen on the small form factor or the viewfinder being to the far left. But at the same time, I'm led to believe that the A7 lll eye and animal can be unreliable. Is that true or do most users here that might read this thread get a high success rate? Is real time tracking meant to have stronger reliability and accuracy than eye and animal AF without the real time tracking or am I misunderstanding what real time tracking does?
