No, one is not better than the other, it's just that they are slightly different in the approach to a field of study. Read the following for a brief overview.

The Master's of Arts degree (MA) has a broader scope, with a strong emphasis on the humanities, theoretical and general knowledge in a recognized discipline, interdisciplinary field, or of a professional study.

The Master's in Science degree (MS) is more of a focused approach with a science base to include a balance of liberal arts, technological knowledge, math and computer oriented skills, and practical skills needed for a particular discipline within the field.

One is really not better than the other. However, if I had to choose one over the other, and had a choice, I would probably take the MS only because the PhD is typically a research based degree. Still, one will not be viewed as better than the other.
