Both seems low.
I assume you mean for jugg/guardian tank, since assassin and PT will have more shield and absorb.
Plus, you did not mention HP and what for you are aiming.
I'd say magic 30% def 50% shield/absorb is what you should aim for (after 50% shield/absorb, rest goes for def chance and hp)
- if I was correct about jug/guardian

edit: back to subject, I'd take higher def chance any day , any time (if we speak of jugg/guardian), if assasin/pt, go for higher absorb

edit2: I just noticed I'm on jugg section go for higher def chance

Honestly, I doubt that you as a player will notice the difference between the two enough on an encounter by encounter difference. But I agree with the above...shoot for higher def first, then, get shield and absorb to 50. but that's a personal preference. I've tanked everything in the game except for HM TfB with less.
