How Does GOP Pick The Source With Two Equally Good Options With A Ship Set (Doc ID 2448444.1)

We plan to use ship sets on order lines to ensure that the complete order is shipped from a the same inventory org (on the same day). Since our GOP sourcing rules are setup with product manufacturing/stocking constraints we may often encounter the following situation:

Item X - Source from P1 (Rank 1) & P2 (Rank 2)
Item Y - Source from P2 (Rank 1) & P1 (Rank 2)

In the event that both plants X and Y can fulfill a demand for a given request date, how does GOP pick P1 or P2 when they are part of a the same sales order and are under the same ship set.

Here is the business context for this query
We are in the business of shipping truck load orders (for most part) and we would ideally prefer to use line weight as the basis to pick one source over others - when we run into situations such as the one described above.
It would not make much sense to source an order from an org that is the primary (rank 1) source for a line that is just 5% of the truck when we should have chosen the source to be one that would be the primary for the line that has 95% of the truck.

Before we proceed with the design, we would first like to know how native GOP resolves this situation.
