Default Push jerk vs Split jerk

I have always utilized the split jerk and am very comfortable with this technique. I started Crossfit about a year ago and noticed that a lot of their workouts call for the push jerk vice the split jerk.

If I sub the split jerk for the push jerk will I be negatively impacting the WOD? I was just looking for a good explanation on which method is more appropriate to use and if there is any real difference between the two movements besides the obvious i.e. what do I gain in the push jerk that I don't get from the split jerk?
