Makes little difference I think. The fatter the tube is in relation to the tyre, the less often you
will have to pump it. Dá raimhre é an tiúb sea is annamha go gcaitear é a theannadh (Irish Gaelic).
Howz about that.

I find that puncture likelihood is more realated to the type of road you ride than the type of tyre.
The more traffic on the road, the less the puncture risk, as car tyres are excellent at sweeping
away sharp items like glass, thorns etc.

A tube with a Kevlar belted tyre round it :-D

One with a thick layer of rubber. What type of bike and cycling would it be for?
Type of inner tube will make very little difference when it comes to preventing normal punctures,
but thicker (ie. non ultralight) tubes will be more durable when it comes to dealing with cuts and
any rough bits inside tyre and rim. Thin tubes can eventually develop holes as they rub against
