1Nt---(2M)---X as penalties

1Nt (15-17)

Your partner prefer penalties doubles in this spot you prefer take-out/negative (coop/dsip doubles are not an option). Is there conditions where you would find it acceptable to play penalties doubles ? Let's hypothetically assume that you will never forget your agreements.

Side question, partner also think X penalties is better at imps than in MP, you think the opposite (but you still play t-o/neg even in MP). 



any conditions, penalties X is as nearly as good or better than take-out neg doubles.
only vs weak field
only vs strong field
only if 2M is 5M+ 4/5minor.
not really, takeout/neg is superior to penalties.
only if they are VUL
only if they are VUL in MP
