Q on fast evolving sequences

Hi there,

I have a question on the construction of phylogenetic trees with sequence
data using parsimony: 

Is there theoretical basis why sequences that evolve faster than the
others tend to branch off "earlier" in a tree instead of joining their
actual "relatives"?

Hinds to papers on this topic are very welcome.

Thanks in advance.

Cheers, Thorsten
