"... The prefer option designates one or more survivors as
  preferred over all others. While the rules do not forbid it,
  it is usually not useful to designate more than one source
  as preferred; however, if more than one source is so designated,
  they are used in the order specified in the configuration file;
  that is, if the first one becomes unselectable, the second one
  is considered and so forth. ..."
