It depends.
Running PHP locally you could just stick with PHP.
Using PHP as a web application and want to run something locally then I would use javascript.

My two cents...

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ms970435.aspx which is *slightly* biased, not surprisingly.

http://channel9.msdn.com/forums/Coffeehouse/193889-vbscript-vs-javascript/ for a good example of the bigotry surrounding the debate.

Lastly, this is an interesting read http://www.internet-nexus.com/books/vbscript/jscript.htm

Ultimately, I'd recommend learning both, with VB Script first, as its syntax is more English-like and then moving on to JavaScript.
