Overall though, I think it will add more time to your charging time though. I'm not certain on that because I don't DC fast charge but I think it will, at times and certain points of the charging curve, prolong your charge and cost you more money if you are paying for the power by time and not electrons.

The AC uses so little power that it won't make too much a difference even when the battery can accept 55 kW. We're talking maybe 2% of the power? That would be something like an extra minute of charging. But especially after the step down curve begins it is a non-issue since the vehicle will draw what the battery needs and then the AC power above that. So if you are paying by the minute you get a better value after the step down by running the AC than if you aren't.
