AFAICS it will use the soft request only for the master queue of this parallel job, and then the defined allocation rule of this PE will be used. Using the allocation rule inside the available soft-requested machines and later (after running out of them) inside the remaining machines is not forseen. It would also be a matter of discussion, whether this would violate the defined allocation rule when it would work like this.
