Team A has set a target of 120 in 20 overs.
Team B hits a 4 at 119, to take the score to 123 in 17 overs.
For NRR calculation will the actual score (123) be counted or the target score (120)?

Net run rate is counted by total runs scored by the team. This also includes additional runs (123-120 = 3) as well.
Have a look at the point table of Asia Cup 2012. Here it shows total runs scored by Bangladesh is 746 in 136.3 overs. Note if point table includes only groups matches. Bangladesh's final score of all three group matches is 241 + 293 + 212 = 746 runs. Which includes 3 additional runs (293-290) scored against India when the target was 290.
Yes. hims056 is correct that Net run rate is counted by total scored runs by team. But the final team score if the batsmen hits a boundary or Six when the scores are level will be taken as 121 if the batsmen were crossed before the ball reaches the boundary.if the batsmen have not crossed each other then it will be taken as 123.
Actually There were two incidents happened like this.
But As far as net run rate calculation is concerned he (hims056) is correct
