My guess is that linux doesn't decide which interface is closer to the
destination trough the interface number. It depends on your route to the
destination (default route in most cases) and the subnet of the interfaces.

For instance, if you have 2 interfaces, eth0 and eth0:1, where eth0 has
ip netmask, and where eth0:1 has ip netmask, and the default gateway is, the ip the kernel will
pick is, and not 

I could be wrong though :-)
