Front Squat= Heavy emphasis on the anterior chain because the bar is in front of you
Overhead squat= Pretty evenly hits both chains because the bar is overhead
High Bar Back squat= More emphasis on posterior chain, but still hits the anterior chain well enough that it really helps the front squat
Low Bar= Predominantly posterior chain with very little anterior chain work, because the bar is so far away
