He answered that already. The one with the higher priority.
Normal use would be to set the phone to the higher priority, because
you'll only be online with that when you're not on your desktop I guess.

If what you're saying is that you want chat messages to go to your
desktop PC and calls to your phone, because the user-experience is
better we might have to find another solution for that indeed (the easy
one would be to just not advertise support from your desktop computer).
