These constraints would prevent the MS resource to run in Master state even on 
that node. Even in case the preferred node is not available any more. This 
might be not what Chet wanted.

Perhaps it would be easier if you give the resource some points if it runs in 
Master state on the preferred node:

location name-of-your-constraint resource-id \
  rule $role=Master 100: \
    #uname eq name-of-the-preferred-node
