Number of admin user accounts and old user name still working - Windows Setup, Administration & Security

Is it recommended to have more than one administrator for a computer? The reason I ask is I read that the built-in administrator account is only meant to be used when you have to use safe mode. So does this mean that it's better to use another admin for regular adminstrative duties? If more than one administrator is NOT needed, then why is it that Windows XP Pro would not let me change my 2nd admin to a limited account until I created a 3rd admin??...

    I am using XP pro and I am able to change my 2nd account
    to a limited account without having a 3rd.
