st: Hausman test (fe vs. re), use robust SE or not?

I want to decide between using the fixed effects or the ramdom-effects

I did a hausman test xtreg y x1 x2 x3, fe
estimates store FE
xtreg y x1 x2 x3, re
estimates store RE
hausman FE RE

i get p =0.000, so i should use FE model.

But if add the vce(robust) option to the two xtreg lines above and test it
again i get p=0.91

So my question: Do i need to use the vce(robust) option for the hausman test
or not?

Thank you very much for your help!
