There are now help buttons integrated in most dialogues, they should link
to the part of the docs describing the dialogue parameters.

In this case it would be:

>  nodes: <node>[:<pri>]{,<node>[:<pri>]}*
>     List of cluster node members, where a priority can be given to each node.

So, the higher you set the priority the higher is a nodes priority.
Also, as mentioned in the docs: this are just relative meanings, i.e. the
highest priority is the highest you set :)

So a group with:

  > nodeA:1,nodeB:2,nodeC:3

Would have the *exact* same results as:

  > nodeA:11,nodeB:222,nodeC:30101

as an exaggerating example.
