There is non, it's totaly depends on the lens. In theory the focal length should not affect the focus.

If you aim the focus to 3m then the image will be in focus regardless of your focal length (as long as your lens can focus in 3m in the chosen focal length).

I don't understand why there is a difference between the "distance from the subject" to "what lens to use". Assuming you're not gonna shot and crop, once you selected your lens and you want to shot head and shoulder portraits there is only one distance that will give you that and you don't have to know it exactly, just put your lens on and go the the point where only the head and shoulder fit into the frame.

@EsaPaulasto, I don't measure the distance, I put on my prime lens and move to the spot I think it's best for the photo I wanna take.

@MichaelClark I wasn't talking about perspective. Perspective should not matter in portrait (assuming you're not going to shoot a portrait with an 11mm lens) at least if you want to focus only on the person and not the background. Google "protrait" and see in the Images section that all the photos only focus on the person and the background is so blur that you can't guess the focal length or see any effect of the perspective.
