How important is bearing quality for casual endurance?

Longevity for sure is better on high quality stuff. But does it affect performance for casual riding?

For example, there's definitely feeling of roughness when I turn the spindle of the BB with my fingers on a cheap bike.
Is this something that makes much difference for a casual rider riding a 35-pound bike during a century touring?
Will the century be more enjoyable with a new high quality BB like a UN55?
