Default Axle shaft groove

Howdy from Kansas.
Today I pulled my axle shafts to replace the wheel bearings. The right shaft has a slight bearing groove. I can feel it with my fingernail, but does not read smaller that the shaft with a micrometer. Do I need to replace the shaft and if I do, should I replace the other as well?
