It actually doesn't make any difference whether you use one die or two
or ten -
For example:
1 die - chance to roll a 6 = 1 in 6, chance to roll two sixes 1 in 36 (1
in 6 x 1 in 6)
2 dice - chance to roll two sixes, 1 in 36.

You can either roll a single die ten times or roll ten dice once each
and the odds are exactly the same.  Remember dice have no memory and are
not linked to each other (in theory) so one die's result is not affected
by the result of a previous roll, a future roll or neighboring die's
roll.

For 6 to the 9th, I get 10,077,696.  That makes the odds of getting
exactly 19 points on one die to be 1 in 30,233,088 or so.  On two dice,
it's more likely, but still pretty unlikely.
