As usual, RTFM to the rescue - the Work Management book seems to support this idea of the last SBS. Here's a relevant bit:

If the device is varied on and has been allocated by another subsystem and is at
the Sign-On display (the Sign-On display was displayed before the second
subsystem was started), a second subsystem can allocate the device from the
first subsystem and display the Sign-On display.

The rest of that manual has much more on this topic and is actually quite clear. ;-)

Wrote the above before I saw the below.  My recollection is vague, and Could
Very Well Be the Last SBS to allocate the DEV gets it.  Can't remember for
certain, and even if I had a system to test on I dunno if I would, in this
case.  (At any rate, mutually exclusive WrkStn name and type Entries are the
solution, as beens noted.)  My recollection, after reading this, is that
this is how you can switch a set of terminals from one subsys to another:
Start the second and when the user's signoff then it gets switched to the
other subsys.
