The modified version looks good to me, thanks.
+ A quorum-based synchronous replication is basically more efficient than + a priority-based one when you specify multiple standbys in + <varname>synchronous_standby_names</> and want to replicate + the transactions to some of them synchronously. In this case, + the transactions in a priority-based synchronous replication must wait for + reply from the slowest standby in synchronous standbys chosen based on + their priorities, and which may increase the transaction latencies. + On the other hand, using a quorum-based synchronous replication may + improve those latencies because it makes the transactions wait only for + replies from the requested number of faster standbys in all the listed + standbys, i.e., such slow standby doesn't block the transactions. > >> It looks better to me, too.
