Both Aleppo and Palmyra are great choices so it comes down to what you may enjoy doing. Aleppo is a city that on top of having great sites also has a very vibrant nightlife whereas Palmyra boasts mainly roman architecture and ancient sites such as the Temple of Bel.
Overall, I'd say that Aleppo is similar to Damascus so, I'd choose either of them and Palmyra for shore excursions. Either way,
Palmyra and Damascus/Aleppo will be the highlights of your visit to Syria.
