And is even documented on pacemaker explained ... with quite elegant solution.

Alternatively, you can tell the cluster only to prefer nodes with the
best connectivity. Just be sure to set
multiplier to a value higher than that of resource-stickiness (and
don’t set either of them

Example 9.5. Prefer the node with the most connected ping nodes
<rsc_location id="WebServer-connectivity" rsc="Webserver">
  <rule id="ping-prefer-rule" score-attribute="pingd" >
    <expression id="ping-prefer" attribute="pingd" operation="defined"/>
