# Is chlorophenylmethane the correct IUPAC name rather than chloromethylbenzene?

I thought that the correct IUPAC name for the molecule below (benzyl chloride) would be chloromethylbenzene because the ring always gets priority over the chain unless a primary functional group is present. However, it seems the correct name is chlorophenylmethane. Can someone explain why that is?

$$\begin{array}{lll} \ce{C6H5-CH2-NCS} &\quad &\text{benzyl isothiocyanate} \\ & &\text{(isothiocyanatomethyl)benzene (PIN)} \\ & & \\ \ce{C6H5-NC} &\quad &\text{phenyl isocyanide} \\ & &\text{isocyanobenzene (PIN)} \end{array}$$
