synapse sequence priority question

Suppose a certain neuron requires 100 mv to fire. Suppose one of its input
synapses gets 75mv, and very shortly, another of its inputs gets 75mv, so it
fires. And each of these synapses is then strengthened, in accord with the
Hebb rule. Is there any research to suggest if the first or the second
synapse is strengthened more than the other?

If there are any theoretical reasons why one or the other or equally is
better, I would be interested in hearing those answers, too.
