Byddai pronunciation

In Gareth King Modern Welsh Grammar - he says that in South Wales - the ai in byddai is not pronounced as ai but as an e . I would like to know if both pronunciations will be understood or not in Soth Wales - seems in the north ai in this case is pronounced a ( GK MWG ) ?

Yes, the more formal and more colloquial pronunciations will be pretty much universally understood. The only exception, I would have thought, would be learners with limited exposure to the full variety of Welsh.
