How does JMS Migration actually work?

We have two nodes in a cluster environment and they are configured to "Auto-Migrate" in the event of one node going down.

On Aug 5th 2018, we had a change where we had to perform the restart of the Application.

The Admin Server was started up first and then from the console we checked (selected) both the nodes (MS1 and MS2) and clicked on the "START" option.

Both the nodes (MS1 and MS2) were getting started up simultaneously but the MS1 came earlier at 10:13 AM IST and then after a delay of 3 minutes, at 10:16 AM IST MS2 node came up.

The below table illustrates how the Migration happened and the timelines it took for the migration to happen.

Name                                    MigratedFrom          MigratedTo   MigrationStartTime                  MigrationEndTime
MigrationData-PATHSERVICE2    MS1                           MS1         Aug 5th 2018 - 10:13:03 IST    Aug 5th 2018 - 10:47:03 IST
MigrationData-Store_MS1            MS1                            MS1        Aug 5th 2018 - 10:13:42 IST    Aug 5th 2018 - 10:28:57 IST
MigrationData-Store_MS2            MS2                            MS1        Aug 5th 2018 - 10:13:42 IST    Aug 5th 2018 - 10:46:41 IST
MigrationData-Store_MS2            MS1                            MS2        Aug 5th 2018 - 10:50:26 IST    Aug 5th 2018 - 10:50:47 IST

From the above table the "MigrationData-Store_MS2" module should be pointing to MS2 (MS2) but as the MS1 was started up first and MS2 came after a delay of 3 minutes this module also started to Migrate and point to MS1 (MS1).

If both of the Managed Nodes were getting started up and there is delay of 3 to 5 min at the time of the start up will these modules point to the available Node only?  Does the Nodemanger not know that the other node (MS2) is getting started up and Migratable Server has to wait for its start up and point to MS2 instead MS1?
