I am not exactly sure, but when you define individual job priorities at qsub
time, you have to have the pbs_sched configured to sort for priority (which
is not in there by default iirc).

I don't know if this is also the case when using 2 queues, but it is worth
at try.
Edit $torque/sched_priv/sched_priv and look at the following keys and also
read the description in the comments:

sort_queues and sort_by

I have:

sort_queues     true    ALL
sort_by: high_priority_first
