let me try to clarify how this works.  first, the job priority only matters
within a single schedd, so this will not do what you wish.  second, condor
schedules jobs and assigns priority based on the owner of the job.  i'm
guessing in this case, the jobs have the same owner in both schedds.

here's two simple options:

1) use accounting groups.  jobs submitted to schedd A and schedd B should then
   have different accounting groups.


2) submit the jobs as a different user to each schedd.  then they will be
prioritized equally.

if you opt for #1 (which i would probably recommend), you can also use
SUBMIT_EXPRS in the config files to do this automatically for you:

please let me know if i can help further.  thanks!
