Default Target variable = counts. What log link?

If the target variable is unit-valued for something such as claim counts, I know I should use either a Poisson/Negative binomial distribution. What would be an argument for using either Poisson or Negative Binomial?

Also, what log link functions should I use and why?

Thanks for any help
