I don't think there is a default in this case. I also see in zypper
that the order of the proposed solutions (there can be way more than two
if the dependencies are more complicated) is not always the same, so
there is no preference implied by the order as well.

That solution unfortunately isn't always the one that causes the least
amount of transactions or even the least amount of breakage.
