The ifconfig(8) join list does not have a way to indicate priority if two or more networks are available to be joined at the same time. You might reverse the order of your two networks in the list to see if that switches which network will be used. If that works, that would solve your problem.

If switching the order doesn't work, then you might consider using other parameters such as chan to force the favored network selection. The ifconfig(8) man page states:
Because multiple access points may exist in a given network, the mode (11a/11b/11g/11n), chan, and bssid parameters cannot be stored with join. However, they may be used separately to force the selection of a particular access point when the automatic access point selection turns out to be suboptimal.
