Or we could have priority being reported to NULL for async standbys as
well, the priority number has no meaning for them anyway...

Mainly my fault here to suggest that standbys in a quorum set should
have a priority set to NULL. My 2c on the matter is that I would be
fine with either having the async standbys having a priority of NULL
or using a priority of 1 for standbys in a quorum set. Though,
honestly, I find that showing a priority number for something where
this has no real meaning is even more confusing..
