Default military press vs behind the neck press

I am currently performing the btnp 3 times per week and I have been told by a few guys at my gym to just switch to the military press because the same muscles are worked with the military press with less chance of injuiry

My understanding was that the military press puts more empthasis on the front delts which get hit hard with benching moves while the btnp puts much more focus on the medial delts

how much do these moves differ in terms of how hard the 3 deltoid heads are worked ?

is the btnp a risky exercise ?

will one move do more to help build a broad set of shoulders than the other ?

thanks for any feedback
