For a package that's only used by one particular class of machines?
I'd say Priority: Extra.
Standard (and esp. required) is for stuff that *everybody* needs, not
just everybody with a specific brand of hardware. Even if the package
is required for that hardware.
(Hardware as opposed to architecture, of course. If it's necessary
for a given arch, then it should be Priority: required on that arch,
but I'm assuming that the NEC PC9800 is arch i386, rather than being a
whole new port of Debian.)
