There is no default objective. Each pset will have at least the minimum
number of CPUs, but may have more. No pset, other than the default
pset, can have more CPUs than pset.max. The number of CPUs allocated to a set
will not change unless someone intervenes manually (e.g. by transferring a
CPU between sets) or a resource optimisation objective is set and dynamic
pools are enabled.

If you want more details about libpool's allocation strategy take a look at:

In particular the comment at line 902 for the pset_allocate_imp() function
should be enlightening.
