When there is no policy selected, we try to sort the VMs according to host
Probably the host data (CPU load) wasn't fetched, and then it selects the
non-spm host (because both of them had zero cpu load).
I we do some testing and get back to you.
In oVirt 3.3, the scheduler had some transformation of how we compare hosts for VM
In previous versions the comparisons used to be on real numbers and now we use weight
functions that generates
integers, so somewhere in the rounding up of that numbers, we miss some crucial fractions
that used to compare the hosts better.
