there will hardly be a difference, where the jobs are running in the 
cluster. If you want a cleaner output with qstat, you could use a script 
to make a qstat two times, and select only each type of queue.

Are you using dual CPU machines? In this case having this setup would 
fill one machine after the other. Because there is always an overhead 
running 2 jobs on one machine, it will a little bit faster to fill first 
one slot on each machine.
