Running or Gunning Redouble?

Playing a strong No-Trump (15-17) 

Opponent's double is conventional, showing either a long minor or both majors.

In the following auction, what is the best use for redouble?

1NT - (X) - XX 

 

It was suggested that it had to be a "runout" redouble, forcing a 2 bid from opener. This definition would make more sense in the context of a weak notrump,say around 12-14, when the double was penalty. Playing a weak notrump, some sort of runout or escape mechanism makes sense.

But what about when the double is conventional --- and the notrump strong?
