Preferred method to reopen the log with logrotate

there seem to be two methods to tell nginx to re-open the log file after the file was rotated (we use logrotate).
1) nginx -s reopen
2) kill -USR1
Which is the preferred method, and why.
I am asking because we have seen nginx -s reopen failing because of a transient issue with the configuration. According to the man page reopen should be the same as SIGUSR1, but the error we saw implies that the config was reloaded (ie SIGHUP).
