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 18.104.22.168 netmask 255.255.255.255, and where eth0:1 has ip 22.214.171.124 netmask
255.255.255.0, and the default gateway is 126.96.36.199, the ip the kernel will
pick is 188.8.131.52, and not 184.108.40.206.
I could be wrong though :-)
