I would keep it the same.

A NEMA 6-20 which is a 250V three wire plug would fit a standard 250V T
slot receptacle which is be most likely to be found.

Another option would be to use a NEMA L14 20P which is a 125/250 4 wire
plug commonly found on generators, rarely elsewhere however in my
experience. This will give you two hots, a neutral, and ground. That
would be the best if a suitable receptacle were available.

You would have to take care to keep the phasing correct when connecting
the primaries in series.
