They are basically the same thing in terms of Chance. But I would say a Shiny Legendary is easier due to the fact that you can Soft-Reset in front of the Legendary until it is Shiny, and not find it randomly. But this is based on opinion, so what does mine matter? ;)

Info on Soft-Reseting.

There isn't a difference in chance.

Shiny random pokemon cause usually on special events you might get shiny legend when you dont get a shiny random pokemon.
